My son is 2 years old and he has pku. He seems to love the burgers. When he’s done eating one he always says “mama, I want more burger please”. I also want to thank the wonderful staff at DS for being so helpful and kind when I call with a question or comment. As a fairly new mom dealing with the issues it can be very confusing sometimes.

Thanks again,
