School-Age Curriculum: Food Choices
Get on the Low-Phe Track
Using a handout with names of some high-phe foods, the children think of low-phe substitutes that will get their diets on the "low-phe track." A low phe recipe is included.
Ordering for Yourself
Participants complete a worksheet, identifying the high phe foods on a menu and substitute low phe alternatives to provide an interesting and satisfying lunch.
Teaching Earthling Rules
Children pretend they are teaching a friend from another planet how to behave on Earth. They describe "good" and "bad" rules to follow. Because this friend also has PKU, the "rules for PKU management" are also described.
