Can I ask how much phe your son is allowed (or protein/exchanges depending on what you are counting)? In any case fruits and vegetables are always wonderful options! Most vegetables can be steamed, boiled, fried, baked, and so on to give them a different texture and taste or simply eaten raw. You could also check out which is a website filled with wonderful low protein recipes that two mothers of PKU children created. I have not tried to recipes myself, but I have heard very good things about them.

Other great resources that might come in handy include:,,,,, and Also if you have Facebook an search PKU or Phenylketonuria there are several online support groups there.

Hope this helps!
