Heather, no we look and act just like anyone else. At first my friends thought it was alittle weird and kind of pityed me but when they realized I didn’t want to be friends for pity and I was just like them but I ate alittle different it doesn’t really matter much. So basically to answer your question your son will be like everyother kid in his school, he’ll just have to eat alittle different, most of my friends had no idea that I had PKU untill I either told them or they asked because I usually take the salad bar at lunch so they couldn’t even tell by what I ate. They only really started asking when I started bringing my PKUexpress coolers (my formula) to school. nBreanna
