Electrolyte Solution

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by UmmBinat

All natural ingredients. This prevents dehydration caused by vomiting and diarrea. This solution immediately stopped my 2 year old's constant vomiting. Base of recipe obtained from a heath information phone service in the province of Quebec, Canada.

This does taste good after a hot day! I used a little less salt and it was a great pick me up. Made for Australian Recipe Swap-July 2010.
