How to make a super easy natural pedialyte alternative for kids and adults

 

Pedialyte is a drink formulation that restores mineral loss after vomiting and diarrhea. This drink is especially helpful for little ones and the elderly, who are a more susceptible to dehydration than the general population.

 

Pedialyte ingredients:Water, Dextrose. Less than 2% of the Following: Citric Acid, Natural & Artificial Flavor, Potassium Citrate, Salt, Sodium Citrate, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Zinc Gluconate, and Yellow 6.

 

In other words, sugar water with salt and minerals added in, along with a generous dose of artificial colors and flavors. And you can bet that dextrose is derived from GMO corn.

Homemade Electrolyte Drink by Modern Alternative Mama

I love this recipe, I’ve made this on several occasions when my children were sick. I love that it also has lemon and honey which are super healing for any illness. Also, this one is another spin on this recipe that doesn’t have the ginger, my kids are sensitive to the taste of ginger so I usually have to use it very sparingly.

This one sounds delicious, we love the flavor of vanilla. Also, since this one uses stevia there is really no sugar in this at all. This is a great choice for anyone on a sugar-free or low-sugar diet.

 

All Natural Sports Drink by Lindsey Bentley

 I love the idea of this one (have not tried it yet myself) because I love the product CALM and I use it daily myself. It’s a great idea to incorporate some of this into a drink made to replenish minerals – whether for illness or for sports.

 

Tumeric-Lime Electrolyte Drink by Modern Alternative Mama

 Turmeric has so many health benefits its great to get it in any way that you can. In this case, it also colors the drink to make it look a bit more like actual yellow gatorade too.
