Hi! just want to let you know that I am 26 years old with PKU and did not have lopro food when I was a kid. I have tried lopro foods, but prefer regular food. some children with PKU gain weight from the formula they drink and the lopro foods can do the same thing. But you should definatly buy a few things and give it a shot. If you ever have any questions please let me know.
