Homemade Pedialyte Recipe

Ahhhh.... sick kids.  I had not one but 2 sick kids over the last 3 days and of course every time they are sick the Paediatric Electrolyte drinks are either expired or we are out! I usually get the one with just apple juice flavour rather then those ones that come in bright colours full of food colouring!  But on thursday we had nothing on hand and he couldn't keep anything down so I made up a batch of homemade "Pedialyte" for him and it helped a lot.  

Oral rehydration really is just water with modest amounts of sugar and salt added so my mixture does the trick with out any additives, flavours or colours.
