 Good luck-and lots of hugs!! 

I have three little girls- and the youngest recently diagnosed pku- and both of my older girls went through stages where they refused most foods- even foods that were their favorites would be refused- and so i started keeping a food diary and realized that after a week (although certainly  not every day) they would get the required nutrients they needed- and a bit part of it was control- the more they thought it bothered/flustered me the less they would eat.
