We always find Easter a bit difficult when deciding what to do for our son with PKU. We always prepare an easter egg hunt for both our children and try to get some treats that they both like. Keir doesn't like chocolate in any form (phew) and there isn't a great deal of choice for … Continue reading Preparation for Easter – PKU style
Kids are counting down the days for Christmas and so excited, I think they are going to pop! I will be prepping the PKU Food for Keir this week. My husband is in charge of the Turkey and the veg. I made a quick Bake and Make List today for Keir's Chrismas Food. Bake some PKU … Continue reading Christmas with PKU
I had mentioned in one of my previous posts that Keir chose a fabric for me to make him a rucksack. I have finished it!

When … Continue reading PKU Meal Ideas for Schools, Restaurants, Family…

I felt it needed a cover to protect it from dirt getting into tiny grooves around the buttons any … Continue reading Sewing – Electronic Scale Cover
Today I thought I would organise a box of things we need for taking Keir's weekly blood test . It has been stored in an old shoe box which has started to fall apart. We used to take blood from Keir once every other day and then when he was around 6 months old we have … Continue reading PKU Blood Tests
