Formyson- nWell I’ll say your son has a mild case of PKU, 1500mg of phe is alot! Me and my sister are 15 and 8 and we only get 300phes a day, that’s like 5times less then your son. nAnyway, when I was little variety was never really an issue for me. I didn’t start realizing that I was eatting similar foods again and again until I was about 6 or 7 and then it didn’t bother me much. As long as I had a snack when my non-PKU siblings did I was happy.
You could go to but I’m not sure if your child is eatting just baby food or solids. Anyway if you two want you can email me at and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have! nBreanna n15 w/CPKU
