Luke can only eat things that are pureed or thickened liguids. I had difficulty finding out what to for his Birthday “cake.” I didn’t want to make a cake that everyone else could eat but him. So I began asking around online to other PWS families and got some great suggestions. I mixed cool whip and yogurt and froze it in a little round container to resemble a small bday cake. Since it was frozen he could pick it up or suck on it without getting too much in his mouth making it difficult to swallow but he was able to get enough on his hands and mouth to make it fun and tasty!
The day before I wanted to do something for his actual birthday so we went down the road to our local snow cone shop and got a strawberry one to share. I think the cold of the ice along with the tart taste of the strawberry surprised Luke as evidence of his reaction:
