In brief: Low-Phe veges +

As you probably know, the secret to a healthy diet for classical phenylketonuria (pku) is food with low amounts of the Amino Acid phenylalanine, under the close supervision of a biochemical geneticist and a metabolic dietician.
Support groups and "pku camps" seem to have great suggestions.Try this link: http://www.Pkunews.Org/.

In brief: Talk with PKU dietn

Your best bet with these issues is direct contact with the dietition working at your metabolic center. I recall a dietition working with all the pku parents when i worked at a center & she had a regular news letter for parents on these topics.
Give them a cal.
