Eat Right Stay Bright is an anticipatory guidance tool, developed by The Children's Hospital of Denver, to aid healthcare professionals in the treatment of patients with PKU.
The Inherited Metabolic Clinic at The Children’s Hospital in Aurora, CO serves the Rocky Mountain Plains Region and at least 130 individuals with hyperphenylalaninemia (PKU). Children and families require a great deal of complex information, most often new and alien to their experience, in order to establish and maintain consistent and effective treatment. Their experience with the process of sharing such information with families motivated the development of this anticipatory guidance book with teaching aids.
We hope that this guide will prove to be a useful tool for you in your metabolic clinic. We are continuously improving the material, so please check back for updates.
