homemade pedialyte

it seems like everyone around town is getting sick these days.
and it’s a bug that’s super dehydrating, especially for the little ones.
i just passed this recipe, from my toddler 411 book, on to a dear friend who has a sick little guy who can’t keep anything down and doesn’t have any of the hydrating solution on-hand.

when you have a sick little one, the last thing you want to do is go to the store, so hopefully this comes in handy for you and your family this winter season!

homemade pedialyte


4 cups water

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp jell-o powder

One thought on “homemade pedialyte

  1. Thank you so much for this! We didn’t have any pedialyte yesterday, but we did have gatorade so we gave that to our little one. She has RSV right now. The side-effect of gatorade is that it has a TON OF SUGAR!!!!!! Our child was bouncing off the walls last night when she should have been ready for bed. This will be incredibly helpful. I follow your blogs and I love seeing where Harper is since she is only a week older than Avery. Can you believe they are nearing the terrific twos?
