Hello, nEaston is now almost two years old and doing very well on the diet. Finger foods…Easton loves the Gerber Fruit Puffs, Veggie Puffs, Kix and raisins. He didn’t really care for the Veggie Crackers. We didn’t use Cheerios because they were too high in Phe’s. 1/2 cup of Kix is 40 Phe. Easton is allowed 225 Phe is a day so Kix makes a good breakfast. We add a little of his formula or rice milk rather than cow milk. Bananas cut in little pieces work well. Gerber also has freeze dried fruit pieces and corn pieces for finger foods.
