How to Keep Kids Hydrated
Tis the season for illness! Nothing is scarier when our kids get sick and they’re not able to keep any drinks down. Dehydration can happen really fast, especially in young children when they have an illness. How can you keep them hydrated?
Water isn’t always enough when they have lost valuable nutrients from the illness, and some sports drinks contain too much sugar. A solution is to use DripDrop in water to help kids regain hydration and regain health.

DripDrop provides a simple, cost-effective solution that empowers everyone to treat mild to moderate dehydration with a safe, medical-grade solution. Their hydration powder packets fit easily in the medicine cabinet, travel kit, purse and gym bag, so it’s there when you need it. Simply mix with water and consume.
Developed by a Mayo-trained family physician, DripDrop contains a golden ratio of ingredients – including sodium, sugars and potassium –which absorb quickly and help you recover faster than any other hydration product on the market. In fact, DripDrop has been shown to hydrate 34% faster than water alone, and 20% faster than a sports drink.
Thanks to She Speaks and DripDrop, I received a box of DripDrop to use. The box comes with 8 powder packs to use as needed. All you need to do is mix it with water. So easy!
There are two flavors: Lemon and Berry. I received the lemon flavor, which was like a diluted lemonade. It went down smoothly,and was refreshing when cool. I also tried it in room temperature water, but it wasn’t as appetizing to me then.
I gave some to my son to try, and he made the standard ‘kid who ate a lemon’ face. It’s probably not something he’d drink every day, but if he was sick he’d probably be more willing to try.
I like that the packets are individual, which means you can store a box of these and have them ready whenever someone in the family is sick.
Often when you buy other kinds of re-hydration fluids, you need to use them within a week or they are no longer potent. This box of DripDrop is good for two years when stored properly! You could have a few boxes on hand at all times for when your family needs it!

That sounds like a good product.It is frightening enough having a sick child. Keeping them hydrated is one less thing to worry about. I wonder if adults can use it too?
Yes! Adults can use it too. It’s made for the whole family. 🙂
