PKU Periflex Junior Plus has been improved to now provide DHA and Fiber for your child

  • DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid found to be lacking in the typical PKU diet
  • Nutricia’s own patented Multi-Fiberblend was added to help support your child’s overall gut health.

DID YOU KNOW IT CAN TAKE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS FOR A CHILD TO GET USED TO A NEW FOOD OR PKU FORMULA?

For some kids, a change in formula can be challenging. Some kids may need to try new foods/formula many times before acquiring a taste for it. So please be patient if that is the case with your little one.

To help we have created the PKU Periflex Junior Plus Activity Book.

Low Protein Food – Buy Direct from Nutricia!

There are a growing number of options when it comes to low protein food.  One of your options includes buying direct from the company, which could add up to a cost savings for you.

For example, Loprofin brand pasta by Nutricia is available online in more than one place, but buying direct from Nutricia’s website www.medicalfood.com provides up to a $2 per box savings per box compared to other online low protein food shops when purchased by the case.*  This can up to BIG savings when buying 6, 12 or 24 boxes in one order.

Quantity per unit is also another important item to explore.  Some products may appear similar in nature and have the same cost per unit.  But with a closer look you may see that one product unit may only provide 10 oz  while the other supplies 16 oz.  You want to compare you prices by ounce or gram to determine the best value for your money.

Next time you are ready to place a low protein food order, compare the volume and cost.   Also consider buying direct from the company and registering on their webistes for special offers and promotions.
