Tips & Tricks: Keeping Dehydration Off the List of Reasons You Go into a Hospital

“Dehydration” is a term we are all familiar with since we’ve all felt thirsty or dehydrated before. Mild symptoms frequently experienced include headaches, dry mouth, and feeling weak or fatigued. I know I have felt mild dehydration myself, and as a nanny, I know how important it is to keep kids hydrated and out of the hospital. Needless to say it’s something to keep an eye out for - especially with children who may not be able to vocalize how they’re feeling. Using electrolyte powder when issues arise - whether it's dehydration, a bad cold, GI distress, etc., can be an important preventative measure for your health and the health of your child. Dehydration is more common than you think, and replenishing electrolytes might just be the answer.


An electrolyte powder without sugar is important for people who need to watch their carbs or sugar intake due to medical or dietary restrictions. For kids with chronic conditions, often watching sugar/carb intake is a priority for parents and caretakers because we don’t realize how much sugar is in Gatorade or Pedialyte.

 

Products like Ultima Replenisher is our personal favorite - because even when drinking a lot of liquids isn’t in the cards- (i.e. your kid doesn’t want to take a lot of water, etc.) electrolyte power, like this one, can be mixed in as little liquid as a few milliliters. This product is also non-GMO, vegan, autism approved, paleo friendly, keto friendly, and gluten-free.
