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.
I certainly agree with Brea. About 30 years ago doctors thought that it was ok to take people off the pku diet which wasn't good at all. I was one of them I ate everything meat, eggs etc but found them hard to digest and use to suffer greatly after eating these products. Chicken, fish and milk didn't excite me much as they taste like nothing and I use to gag.
Time went by and my health deteriorated so much that now I am back on the diet which was the hardest thing I had to do for myself but gradually I did and now I am living a great quality life again.

when i was pregnant with aoife it was required by my dietition to try a piece of bacon and cheese because the baby needed the protein! as you go further into your pregnancy the exchanges went higher to meet the babies needs. That was the only and last time i'll try meat didnt care for it!
