Homemade Pedialyte. Who knew there were so many people out there wondering how to make Pedialyte at home? I had no idea when I shared my post for How to Make Homemade Pedialyte last year.

Since I wrote that post, I’ve received tons of emails from a variety of people sharing their own homemade Pedialyte recipes. Most were pretty similar to those that I listed, but there were a few new concoctions that I wanted to share.

There were a few comments in the other post about real Pedialyte having vitamins that these recipes don’t offer. According to the corporate website, Pedialyte does not contain vitamins.

Keep in mind that the primary purpose of Pedialyte, similar beverages like the ones below and other electrolyte-replacement beverages is to prevent dehydration, rehydrate, and/or replenish vital minerals and nutrients lost during diarrhea and vomiting.

Of course, if you have any medical concerns about your little one, please don’t hesitate to seek the advice of a medical professional.

Here are more homemade Pedialyte recipes:
