Hydralyte is a scientifically formulated Oral Rehydration Solution. Hydralyte is formulated to replace water and electrolytes lost due to vomiting, diarrhoea, heavy sweating, vigorous exercise and excess alcohol consumption.
When children and adults are sick and suffering from nausea, sucking slowly on the frozen Ice Blocks makes it easier to rehydrate. One advantage of Hydralyte IceBlocks is that children think of them more as a frozen treat rather than a medicine. TIP: Offer Hydralyte frozen electrolyte ice blocks to children when they are sweaty on hot days (rather than a sugary icy pole).Hydralyte Electrolyte Ice Blocks are suitable for the entire family, including babies, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
How to use
1. Place Hydralyte Ice Blocks in the freezer.
2. When frozen cut one end with clean scissors.
3. Push the frozen Hydralyte Ice Block from the cut end.
4. Suck small amounts until consumed.
