Keep Pedialyte Powder Packs on Hand for Flu Season!

We just spent three lovely days on vacation, but now it’s back to reality: One of my twins is displaying flu symptoms. He never has much of an appetite when he’s sick, so I want to be sure that he’s getting the fluids his body needs. Therefore, one of the first things I did was to crack open a package of Pedialyte Powder Packs.

Pedialyte is specially formulated to replace lost fluids and electrolytes caused by diarrhea and vomiting. Many people assume that sports drinks are a suitable replacement, but they don’t contain the proper balance of electrolytes that children lose when they’re sick.

Pedialyte’s new powder packs are great because they’re in single-serving sizes that can be easily transported or stored. You just mix one powder pack with eight fluid ounces of water. Pedialyte Powder Packs are available in variety-pack eight-count boxes of Fruit Punch, Grape, Apple and Strawberry flavors, or in single-flavor four-count boxes of Fruit Punch and Apple.

One of the most dangerous side effects of diarrhea and vomiting is dehydration. So, it’s really important for your child to properly replace lost fluids if he or she is experiencing these symptoms. Pedialyte can help.

Visit for more information. Always consult with your child’s physician if symptoms become severe.

DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary four-count box of Pedialyte Powder Packs in fruit punch flavor to facilitate this review. I am not a medical professional, and this post should not be construed as medical advice. Your experience with this product may differ from mine. Ask your physician if Pedialyte Powder Packs are appropriate for your family.
