How To Tuesday: How to Make Homemade Pedialyte Cheap to Prevent Dehydration
When your infant or toddler is sick, running a fever, and throwing up your pediatrician probably recommends that you give your child pedialyte to help prevent dehydration. For some parents, Pedialyte is just too expensive to keep on hand, never knowing if you will actually use it. If you do not keep it on hand, you really do not want to take a sick child to the store to purchase some. Luckily, there is an inexpensive recipe that allows you to make homemade Pedialyte for your sick child. You can make the flavor your child prefers for just pennies a serving. If you are having trouble getting your child to take fluids, you can also freeze some into popsicles. If your child is runninga fever, the cold Popsicle may help reduce the fever while replenishing the electrolytes in your child’s body.

Place four cups of fresh water into a clean container.
Add one-half ( ½) teaspoon of salt to the fresh water.
Add one-half ( ½) teaspoon of baking soda to the fresh water.
Add three (3) teaspoons of sugar to the fresh water.
Add one-half ( ½) package of unsweetened Kool-Aid(any flavor) to the fresh water.
Note that adding the Kool-Aid for flavor is optional. If you do not have any Kool-Aid the recipe will work, it just may be more difficult to get your child to drink it. If you have presweetened Kool-Aid or sugar free Kool-Aid omit the sugar from the recipe. You can also add Wylers drink mixes, Crystal Light drink mixes, or whatever you have on hand to improve the flavor so your child will drink the electrolyte replacement solution (Pedialyte solution) or eat the popsicles.
Children rarely end up in the hospital from a fever, they end up in the hospital because they become dehydrated.
