Metabolic clinician will provide the correct amount of powder to mix with water for consumption.
It is important to follow the directions below.
Measure the correct amount of water into a suitable container for mixing. Then add the required amount of PFD Toddler. Mix well until blended. Consume the prepared beverage immediately or cover and refrigerate. Use within 48 hours of preparation. Mix before drinking.
If instructed to use the scoop in the can, each scoop (unpacked and leveled) delivers approximately 4.5 g of powder. Store DRY scoop in can.

Store unopened cans at room temperature. After opening can, keep tightly covered, store in a dry area and use contents within 1 month. Do not freeze powder, and avoid excessive heat.
PFD Toddler is nutritionally incomplete. Care must be taken to provide enough protein to support growth, using other foods with protein as required. The physician must carefully and constantly supervise the use of PFD Toddler with other foods and adjust the diet based on frequent blood tests.
Use by date on bottom of can.
Nutritional powders are not sterile.
WARNING: Not for parenteral (I.V.) use.
Fat provides 54% of total calories in PFD Toddler. The fat consists of a four-oil vegetable blend of palm olein oil (44%), soy oil (19.5%), coconut oil (19.5%), and high oleic sunflower oil (14.5%) along with ARA and DHA from single cell oils (2.5%).
PFD Toddler provides no protein or protein-building amino acids. Since the product contains no protein or amino acids, care must be taken to provide enough protein from other foods to support growth.
Carbohydrate provides 46% of total calories in PFD Toddler. The carbohydrate blend is corn syrup solids, modified corn starch, and sucrose (table sugar). PFD Toddler is suitable for someone with lactose intolerance.
Vitamins and Minerals
Amounts of B vitamins have been increased for cofactor production. An increased level of choline, an essential nutrient important for brain development and the normal functioning of cells1-2, is provided. Calcium, iron, zinc, manganese, and copper levels are higher in order to help meet the needs for these minerals when low-protein solid foods are introduced.
