Product Talk: Electrolytes for Sick Babies


If you’re a parent, you know what electrolytes are. They are the magical substances that help your baby get over an illness. Specifically, your baby needs electrolytes when he’s dehydrated—and that often accompanies a fever.

The most common brand name for electrolytes is Pedialyte. It’s a liquid that helps restore the amino acids, electrolytes and nutrients quickly. When babies go a day or so without eating or drinking much, they rapidly become dehydrated, and electrolytes help restore the crucial balances.

Getting your baby or toddler to drink his electrolytes used to be a real chore—it’s a type of medicine, after all! But recent advances have brought fruit-flavored electrolytes and also frozen fruit pop electrolytes! Now babies don’t balk as much when faced with electrolytes—because they’re yummy!

Brookshire’s health care line, Top Care, has its own line of electrolytes, in the fruity and frozen varieties, as well as the standard liquid. Because it’s Top Care, it’s at a lower price and is guaranteed to be equal in quality to the national brands.
