Hi, I just wanted to let you know what worked for me in 4th grade. My nutritionist came into my school and gave a demonstration about pku, and she brought dixie cups and mixed formula for everyone to try and snacks that are ok for someone with PKU. I think that the kids in class are curious and don’t really understand why someone with PKU can’t eat “normal” foods. The kids in my class were very accepting after the presentation and sometimes I had to explain that “yes, I can eat that! Best Wishes
