Pedialyte has been a staple in our home for many years. Whenever I would see a great deal at the store (with coupons) or a good generic price, I would stock up. Yet, I would always cringe about the chemicals listed on the back.

You know how pricey a little bottle of Pedialyte is.  Well, here is a great solution.  Homemade Pedialyte, which in my opinion, tastes MUCH better.

Tip:
My trick for giving Pedialyte to a sick child consists of 1 teaspoon every 15 minutes. If they can hold those doses down for 2 hours, I increase it by a teaspoon every hour thereafter.  I use a medicine dosage cup from liquid Advil or Tylenol and set the egg timer.

 

Ingredients:
1 Cup of Warm (not hot) Water
2 Tablespoons + 2 Teaspoons of Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
3 Cups of Cold Water
1 Cup of Juice (I like white grape juice)

 

Directions:
Dissolve sugar and salt into the warm water.  Mix in the cold water and juice. Refrigerate.

There!  Isn’t that better?  Tastier and much easier on the purse!
