    Sorry, I don’t know. Usually the rule of thumb is that 1 gram of protein is equal to about 50 phes (or 3.4 exchanges) so it should be okay if you don’t give her to much. If you have the number to your granddaughters dietian/doctor you could try calling them and see what they say. nBreanna

    The nutrition labels can have .49 grams of protein per serving, and still round down to 0 grams, so just because it says 0 grams doesn’t mean it’s “free.”
