You could try to do what my mom did when I was little and litertally wouldn’t eat anything. She would add alittle bit of regular milk into my formula to get all of my phes in. I believe she said that it was 50phes for 1 ounce of regular milk but I would feel alot better if you check with your doctor or dietitians if you decide to try this because I’m not positive and would feel awful if it was more phes and I made your childrens levels go up.
But that way, I didn’t taste the milk in my formula so my mother never had to worry about me getting attached to the flavor and taste. nBreanna n15 w/CPKU
