52 Weeks of Pinterest: Week 18 – Homemade Pedialyte!

This year I wanted to go with a resolution I would have no problem sticking to! Then as I was pinning an item on Pinterest, a light bulb flashed on above my head. Ok, maybe not literally, but this great idea popped into my head. Those of us who are Pinterest users know that we pin hundreds of things a week, but do we ever do them? So I decided this year I would do one of my pins every week. At the moment, 52 weeks of Pinterest was born. Each week I will do something I found on Pinterest rather it be a craft, new recipe, organizing technique, or whatever!

This week I decided to go with a pin from the Parenting Tips & Tricks Board: Homemade Pedialyte.

pedialyte

 What You Will Need:
1/2 cup hot water
3 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon Jello gelatin powder/mix, any flavor (I used raspberry)

I have a sick little one this week and she will not touch Pedialyte. If you have tried it, it doesn’t taste that great and it is ridiculously expensive. I found this great alternative on Pinterest that I just had to try out!

Best part is that it is super easy to make and the costs are way low, you likely have everything on hand already.

Blend your salt, sugar, and Jello in with your hot water until dissolved. Mix in your cool water and wa-la. Two minutes and it’s ready.

You can store this in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I tried it and it tastes better than Pedialyte in my opinion and my daughter drank it … and kept it down! Win, win, win! 🙂

Make sure to pin this to Pinterest to save for later! If you are not following us on Pinterest, make sure to do so now so you don’t miss out on some great pins!

Hope you enjoyed Week 18 of 52 Weeks of Pinterest, come back next Saturday for another attempted pin!If you don’t want to wait a week for a new pin idea, checkout our DIY posts, there are some great ideas there as well!
