Homemade Pedialyte?

I've made homemade pedialyte according to the recipe I have 4 cups of water, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 pack of unsweetened Kool-Aid.

My daughter who is sick and vomiting wouldn't drink it the baking soda and salt was over powering the drink. So I added some more sugar to it. I've googled the recipe several times this morning, and everyone one I've come across has the same measurements.

Does anyone have or know of a recipe that would be more acceptable to a child? Or have you found that you needed to modified the recipe and if so how did you modified it?

The easy answer is just go get pedialyte, but honestly that's not an option. I can't take her to the store. Besides I refuse to pay those prices when when I know I can just make it!

  • I'd back off on the salt. The baking soda has plenty of salt in it.
