Just curious as to everyones opinion on gatorade. such as, do you let your kids drink it? how often?
how do you think it compares to regular juice? is it the same amount/type of sugar they're getting from regular juice, or is it way more.
do you think its super bad for kids to have gatorade?
curious because I try not to allow my kids too much junk food... but I still like to treat them to special things from time to time. When one of my twins had the flu I got some gatorade for him because he wouldn't drink even the non flavored pedilite. but he LOVES grape gatorade. (they both do) so I've been letting them have some gatorade about once a day or so.
but I don't have bottle in the house to check sugar content right now and I'm curious.
Gatorade was made for athletes to gain back electrolytes lost when you perspire and are active above normal everyday levels. It's not something you would just give on a everyday basis. You can use it instead of pedialyte for kids when they are sick or have diarrhea
