What is Pedialyte?
Pedialyte an electrolyte replacer that is given to kids and adults when they are sick causing them to become dehydrated. The electrolyte drink helps prevent mild to moderate dehydration more effectively than sports drinks, juice or plain water that is also great for when kids are sick.
I call this homemade Pedialyte because there is no other name for it that anyone would know since the store bought same thing is Pedialyte.
Why Make Homemade pedialyte
Some people want to make their own because they do not like the ingredients in store bought pedialyte and the dyes that are used.
Some people like to make their own because, let’s be honest here, pedialyte in the stores tastes gross. Others like to make their own because it is MUCH cheaper to make your own then buy it in the store.
For us it is a combination of my kids not liking the flavors that are in store bought and that it is much cheaper for me to make it.
I also do not know when my kids are going to be sick, if I did that would be amazing. But as we all know kids get sick with out warning and having to take a sick kid to the store to get pedialyte is not my idea of fun. I always have pedialyte ingredients on hand in my house for whenever we might need it.
How to use homemade pedialyte
Use homemade pedialyte in the same way that you do the store bought pedialyte and it is not recommended for children under 1 year of age. Of course with all things that deal with sickness, be sure to ask your doctor first before giving it to your child.
It is important not to give it to anyone until they haven’t throw up in two hour. Make sure when the person who needs the rehydration is drinking it, they just sip it.
When you are serving homemade pedialyte you do not need to add ice to it, you can however if you want to. My kids prefer to drink it with ice in it so it is nice and cold.
How to store homemade Pedialyte
After making homemade pedialyte store it in the fridge in a pitcher for up to 3 days. Use as needed.
