Remember to re-hydrate your child if it has diarrhoea!
REHYDRO Kids is used for preparing a solution to make up for lost water and minerals in the event of vomiting, diarrhoea and burns.
The use of oral re-hydration solutions has been recommended by the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN), the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF.
Oral re-hydration is the first step in the treatment of acute diarrhoea, as recommended by these associations.
If you start re-hydration on time, acute diarrhoea ceases faster, the symptoms are milder and the child quickly regains energy.
Oral re-hydration is the only proper way to replenish fluid and electrolytes. Oral re-hydration applied in case of acute diarrhoea prevents complications!
The solution is for children and infants older than 6 months.
The powder is simply dissolved in 200 ml of boiled and cooled water. It does not require sugar.
It tastes like strawberries, so the kids gladly accept it.
In case of vomiting, diarrhoea and burns, it is necessary to administer the liquid to the child in small portions.
Vomiting is not an obstacle to the application of the solution, and usually ceases during the re-hydration period.
The solution should not be added to juice, tea or milk to avoid further dilution.
The solution should not be sweetened.
Keep in mind that infants and young children are at a greater risk of dehydration! Applying re-hydration early can prevent more serious complications! You can re-hydrate your child with mild dehydration by using Rehydro kids solution at home. In case of severe dehydration, you must take your child to a paediatrician!
