I'm not a doctor, but I've always been under the assumption that doing something such as that would not be a good idea. Eating all of your phe for the day at once could spike a phe level and make it drastically increase in a short time. It might not be a good idea to introduce your son to very high phe foods such as meat, because as he gets older he may want to eat more than he is allowed, or he could eat it more often than allowed.

I have never eaten meat, and I have no interest to try it.
