I'm starting this blog to help me and other mom's with children who have HCU (homocystinuria). My son Kaden got diagnosed after two abnormal newborn screening tests at 8 weeks old. After a few months full of fear and hopelessness I can now say I KNOW my son will be fine. I have jumped into this feet first and am doing everything I can to track his diet and follow his treatment plan. Since he is just now getting bored with baby food (he will be 10 months in 4 days) the real fun of being a crafty cook is going to begin! I'm fortune to be a stay at home mom so I can devote a lot of time to researching foods methionine/protein values and work on my cooking skills. I have found a few moms online who have helped me tremendously with low protein recipes. Unfortunately, most of there kids are older or they are overseas so I can't get the same ingredients or cook those recipes for Kaden, just yet. So far Kaden is a good eater but he is only 10 months old so certain textures he is just not ready for even with 7 teeth. So, with that said, this is Kaden's journey with HCU!
