I just want to say becareful witht the amount of protein your child can eat and certain fruits and veggies. Especially bananas, oranges, and coconuts. Some fruits and veggies actually have a high concentration (comparitively) of PHE. French Fries and potatoes do have a lot too (although I LOVE both of them). Medium size fries and McDonalds have 4 grams of protein. I do not know your specific child’s needs but I can only have 5 grams a day and I am 18.
