Don’t you hate when the kids are sick and you have to run out to get supplies to make them feel better? Nothing is worse than taking a sick kid out in public! Skip the Pedialyte and make your own oral rehydration salts instead.
My boys rarely get sick with stomach bugs. We’ve been lucky that we’ve only had to buy Pedialyte once and my boys hated it. I hated the fact that I spent so much on a stupid drink that my boys won’t even drink.
I knew there had to be a better way which is why I did some research on dehydration and found this article about oral rehydration salts.

Instead, just copy the solution and make your own!
DIY Pedialyte (Oral Rehydration Salts)
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tsp. sugar
1 liter of water
Mix it all together until the salt and sugar have dissolved.
I use coconut milk instead of water and add less sugar. Watered down orange juice or coconut water also work well.
