Hi Chinababe nMy name is Keisha and i have a six year old son who has pku, when he was about 1 to 2 years old he went through a stage where he really didnt want to eat and his levels went too low, his dietician also suggested that i give him something he really shouldnt eat to help bring his levels up, so i gave him a slice of normal bread and it has taken me 4 years for him to forget what it taste like and has only just started eating low protein bread. im not sure what kind of low protein foods you have, but our low protein spiral pasta looks and tastes the same as normal pasta, so when Zach’s levels go too low i genrally use that to help bring them back up to where they are ment to be, he dosnt know the difference. ni hope i have been of some help.
