I agree with Brea. Don’t cook the formula because amino acids change form in heat and therefore your child wont get all of the nutrients that are in the formula. My mother also used the Nestle Strawberry syrup stuff but I never cared for it. I just recently discovered the amazingness of PKU smoothies. Use the formula, ice, apple juice, and fruit in a blender and serve. I think it’s fantastic.
