From the back of the van on the way home from an outing my six year old daughter informed me that she was going to be sick. My initial reaction was uh oh what kind of sick her response was throw up sick mama. Great I thought, hurry and get home! See this is not the first time one of my five kids has thrown up in my van with very little notice and the outcome was a mother’s worst nightmare!
At home I made her lay down. She said she was thirsty so I gave her Pedialyte to drink then and rubbed peppermint oil on her stomach. Thankfully with rest my daughter was back to herself quickly!
I was first introduced to Pedialyte when my first child was born ten years ago. Ever since then it was been a staple in our family during flu season. Pedialyte helps restore the body’s potassium, sodium and chloride minerals, also known as electrolytes without all the sugar all while keeping the body hydrated.
Other beverages on the market such as sports drinks, juice, and soda do not meet the medical guidelines for helping to prevent dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting. These types of drinks are high in sugar and low in sodium, which is an important electrolyte lost due to diarrhea and vomiting.
Pedialyte is available in fun flavors for children and adults and in different forms and sizes to suit their needs. Plus it is offered in liquid, powder packs and freezer pops which makes it it easy to re-hydrate at home or on the go! Stock up right now and save $2 off any (2) one liters purchase.
Pedialyte products can easily be found at Walmart in the baby section next to the baby formula and foods.
How do you try to keep your family well during flu season?
