When my son was about 6 years old (he’s 12 now), he had some halo-halo which our office staff bought from a nearby store. At the time my daughter was just a toddler so she wasn’t really old enough to eat halo-halo yet. When we got home, he complained of a tummy ache and ended up going to the bathroom a lot. We consulted our pediatrician and after some tests we found out he had amoebiasis. I immediately suspected the crushed ice used in the halo-halo was made from unclean water. There was no other variation in my son’s daily routine except for that halo-halo. He had to take medication for a week and miss a few days of school because of what happened. After that experience, I was determined to make sure it never happened again.
As a mom, I always want what’s best for my kids. I’m very discerning when it comes to what I buy for them be it clothes, toiletries, and school supplies… so what more consumable items like food and water? The well-being of my children is always top priority. That said, of course I want only the safest drinking water for them… and that, as I’ve discovered over the years, is distilled water… specifically Wilkins Distilled Drinking Water. It comes highly recommend by our pediatrician to boot. I trust her and I know that we both share the same sentiment when it comes to our children’s health: There can be no compromise. I’m well aware that Wilkins costs a bit more compared to other distilled water brands but I don’t think we can put a price tag on the health and safety of our children.
