Jenny,
I’m sure you’ll do fine. My mother probably thought the same thing when I was born since she was new to the PKU world aswell and she was relatively young (21 I think). Plus she had my sister and brother who were about 3 years and 17 months so she was new to the parenting stuff aswell. I have 4 sisters (one is older) and an older brother without PKU and an 8 year-old sister with PKU. But 15 years later and I’m happier and healthier then ever! nMy simple word of advice is try to introduce more fruits and veggies to your daughter. With me my mom did that and now I tend to eat more low protein foods and with my sister, my mom fed her more snack foods and she now likes more snack foods then low protein foods. nBreanna
