Homemade Pedialyte Recipe
This pedialyte recipe is doctor approved, in fact my doctor is the one who gave it to me for my kids. I was going to buy them pedialyte and they told me how simple it is to make at home and how much cheaper it is as well.
When your little ones are sick it is very important keep them well hydrated. If you have a child or adult who is dealing with dehydration from being sick this is the perfect solution to helping them. Store bought Pedialyte is expensive plus it doesn’t taste good. My kids hated it when they had to drink it, and so I went to my doctor to find out if there was a different solution to helping them stay hydrated when they were sick.
This is the exact recipe they gave me and my kids don’t complain about having to drink it. Since my doctor gave me this recipe years ago, I have not bought it at the store and only make pedialyte at home for my kids.
The main part of a pedialyte drink is the salt to help restore electrolytes. Drinking water will help with staying hydrated but there aren’t any electrolytes it it to help combat dehydration.
How to use homemade pedialyte
Use homemade pedialyte in the same way that you do the store bought pedialyte.
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.
