Transitioning from a phe-free infant formula

At this stage, children are exploring different tastes and textures and solid foods are starting to replace fluids to meet daily nutrition needs. To meet increasing protein requirements, phenylalanine (phe) -free formula may need to be concentrated to help with appetite and establishing age-appropriate eating behaviors.
PKU explore5 is a powdered phe-free formula you mix with a small amount of water to form a spoonable consistency. It is designed to support the introduction of solids. PKU explore10 could also be prepared as a low volume drink.
