First and foremost I would like to thank the internet for turning toddler puke into a life threatening disease. Poor tot monkey woke up early with a vomit filled crib crying for Mama. Being that this is our first encounter with tot vomit I consulted the ole internet and Google searched “bright yellow vomit” which lead me to “bile” and further lead me to a rare twisted intestine that would need immediate surgery…ummm freak out starts now! My first instinct was to get food and liquids into her system asap….WRONG! Mommy 101 never fill your vomiting tot with large amounts of food and liquid as it will quickly end up on your furniture, clothes, floor and carpet YUCK! Longer story short after leaving the Ped’s office with a recommendation for pedialyte/ gatorade, Tylenol and a stomach flu diagnoses we were so relieved the internet was again wrong. So on the way home we stopped at the local Whole Foods in search of something similar to gatorade and pedialyte as I really didn’t want to cram a bunch of red dye # whatever and sugar down my tots throat. To my surprise we found some very lovely options!
better then gatorade!!!
no red dye # whatever instead colored with beta carotene
no artificial sugars instead sweetened with juice
no weird additives
Comes in Lemon, Orange and Mixed Berry
better then Pedialyte
No sugars or artificial dyes
No artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. No MSG, No Soy and Gluten Free Vegan
Best part about the Ultima is that it comes in powdered form so the taste can be adjusted and it will last longer as I am sure this is not the last time we will need it.
