When the barf bug hits the house, what would we do without that tasty Pedialyte or Gatorade? Hey, I know, make our own! Years ago, a gang of us took off on a hike in Volcano National Park (picture black lava and hot sun). Into the hike we realized we only had one bottle of water to go around. Back home that night I came down with nausea and a headache. Mom dialed her mom and former WWII Army nurse, Tutu Stevie, to get a diagnosis. I was dehydrated. She told mom how to whip up an electrolyte drink. In a couple of days I was better. Well, this week the barf bug has dealt this house a blow. This round, foregoing the bottled store-bought stuff, I thought I'd make my own. This homemade concotion may not look like orange aid or fruit punch OR be loaded with dextrose and artificial colors, but thats fine with me. Here is the recipe I used. It comes from a mother who dedicated her life to healing her child through nutrition and helping other parents do the same. Thank you Elaine!
NOTES: This is probably not suitable for children under one as honey is not advised for children until after a year old. Use a quality sea salt. Celtic or Himalayan are great choices.
