Our daughter has always enjoyed being outdoors.  Nature hikes, playground chaos and running through the grass all top her list of fun things to do.  Even though she’s now older, her activities have not changed and she still spends a great deal of time outside.  Pedialyte® ensures that she is well hydrated in the hot Florida weather.

As a mom, I have always been concerned about heatstroke from the sweltering sun rays that we tend to get year round here in the South.  Moving here had me so worried about how I’d prevent illness from dehydration, particularly with all of the outside activities.  I wanted to keep my family hydrated but like most kids, my daughter didn’t enjoy plain water enough to drink it as much as she should.

I spoke with our pediatrician and he explained that Pedialyte® helps restore the body’s potassium, sodium and chloride minerals; fancy terms for electrolytes.  It’s actually the #1 recommended oral electrolyte solution.  Beloved enjoyed many of the flavors (Strawberry is her fave!), so she drank more.

I felt better knowing that she was getting the right amount of water and electrolytes each day; which kept her healthier all year round.  She stays hydrated in the summer and illness free during flu season.

Now that she’s a teenager, Pedialyte® is still part of this mom’s arsenal against dehydration.  It’s hard to keep teens inside and particularly our nature loving hippie kid.  She is always off on an adventure; camping, gardening or just hanging out with friends in the yard.  And yes, I’m still chasing her to drink enough!

Lucky for us, Pedialyte® comes in these cute little packets that she can take with her on the go.  It’s second nature for her to grab a water bottle and the powder packets.  When she’s thirsty, she simply rips open the packet, dumps it into her water bottle, shakes and drinks.  They fit right in her pocket or hat.

I buy the 8 count variety box at Walmart when I’m picking up my groceries so we always have them in the house.  Pedialyte® is found in the baby section so it gives me a great reason to meander through the aisles and wax nostalgic.  Babies smell so good!  And all of those bright colored bottles make it so easy to find on the shelf.
