Your little boy should be given vitamin D supplements, see this section on MS in Family Members for the reasons why and dosages.http://www.overcomingmultiplesclerosis. ... y-Members/
In the Family FAQ's:Q Should my children be eating the same diet?
Swank noted in his study that there were no new cases of MS in families where everyone followed the same diet as those with MS. It is also easier to cook one meal only, but may be difficult to get agreement from family members, especially if they are older.http://www.overcomingmultiplesclerosis. ... rces/FAQs/
Professor Jelinek also posted this, while he recommends breast feeding if possible, the inference is that soy-based formula is preferable,Re: Question about formula for babies

This is a pretty specialised area, so my advice is only general. But the World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breast-feeding until 6 months (in our society, we usually advise 4-6 months), then adding solids with breast-feeding ideally continuing until 2 years. In our society we tend to wean them off breast milk and onto cow's milk, but really, if breast-feeding is continued until at least year or so, going onto a normal diet is fine after that, without any cow's milk or milk products. Soy products can form part of that diet, as soy is a really healthy product.
Hope that helps, but it may pay to seek more specialised advice.
So by giving him vitamin D and following the same diet recommendations, you would be doing everything possible to reduce his risk, and of course he is not going to disagree at his age
