When Yolanda Shennan fell pregnant with her first born, Hudson, she envisioned all the foods she would get to cook for him. But only days after he was born, Hudson was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called phenylketonuria (PKU) leaving him to lead a life on an incredibly restricted diet to survive. This week, Yolanda shares the many challenges of managing Hudson's diet and how she’s raising her son to be the most resilient he can be.
