Teaching the basics to our PKU child

Do you have a child who has phenylketonuria? If so, you may have started explaining to them what this condition is and how to make the right choices for their health. 

It can be quite a challenge! I myself have a 3-year-old daughter and I have a whole range of lessons to teach her. The importance of vegetables, of eating good foods, of not doing stunts on the couch, etc. Not always easy, especially with her little rebellious mind. What always works best is when what I say is clearly explained, makes sense and above all, is fun.

Is it time to teach your child the basics of #phenylketonuria? Here is a great activity book to get you started! https://bit.ly/3EBJKQA #PKU

However, my daughter does not have phenylketonuria, so I imagine what it would be like if in addition we had to explain the basics of phenylketonuria to her. Luckily, there are tools to help you with this task. Or should I say this « activity », because it doesn’t have to become a task. 🙂 

Our friends at Nutricia Metabolics have created a great little activity book for children to teach them the essential basics of phenylketonuria while having fun. Very popular and appreciated by parents who have already had the chance to consult it, this book talks about the following subjects, among others: 

  • Learn to love its formula and what is its purpose
  • Understand why we shouldn’t eat too much protein 
  • Know about fruit and vegetables and why they are good for us 
  • And more!
