Summer months 2014 in the Philippines, March, April, May are very hot. Most Filipino children get into the halo halo craze. As do my own children. Wife tries her best and commissions our cook to make more “healthy” halo halo ingredients, some from scratch. We substitute raw coconut milk for the unhealthy “evaporated milk” most people use. But the problem with having house hold maids is they are TV traditionalists and requested their own “evaporated milk”. Which our young children then said they thought “evaporated milk” tasted “better”. Which both me and my wife think do not.
So after 2 weeks of halo halo… and sometimes a bit of street ice cream “sorbetes”, usually made with “powdered milk”… my wife blames this combination for the recurrence of eczema on our just turned 13 year old boy who was eczema cured. And just a few days before returning to school! Eczema at the back of his knees and his crotch area.
