I hate buying Pedialyte, it’s just so expensive, and then I feel like it gets wasted because it’s never completely gone and I have to throw it away. I wanted to make my own for my baby, as she was sick this week, and milk was not helping out in any way. I looked up a few different recipes on the internet, and made my own.
3 1/2 cups of cold water
1/2 cup of boiling water
2 teaspoons of powdered jello, I used strawberry
3 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Pour the jello, sugar, and salt into a pitcher.
Add in the boiling water and stir until the powdered ingredients are completely dissolved.
Add the rest of the water, stir, and refrigerate.
I like that this mixture is so simple, you know what’s in it, and it tastes a little bit better than the Pedialyte in the stores. It’s very easy to make and with ingredients almost any parent would have on hand.
