A dialogue from a well-known sitcom:

Joey - That eggnog in our fridge was great
Rachel - Joey, that was formula

What kind of formula would that be? Cant find anything on wikipedia or search engines...

    Baby food with some sort of rich milk and vitamins is called formula. Joey is not smart enough to know that a baby in the house could mean baby food in the refrigerator. – Yosef Baskin Apr 13 at 19:47

    It is not "farin lacte." That would be "baby cereal." I believe the Greek is Γάλα σε Σκόνη, although, it appears that term might be more general, referring to any powdered milk, like the kind we might use in baking bread. I don't read Greek, but I think this is the right product: Γιώτης Γάλα σε Σκόνη Sanilac HA – Juhasz Apr 13 at 20:21

    @Juhasz Thanks, that must be it. The toughest English to learn are the everyday ones. – George Menoutis Apr 14 at 6:54
