What I love about these new Pedialyte Singles is that I can keep these in the medicine cabinet until we need it. I really dislike having to run to the store when I know my kids need me at home. Also, it is nice to not have to waste a whole bottle of Pedialyte when we don’t need to. I really wish these were available a few years ago when my daughter had her tonsils out.
2 Flavors of Pedialyte Singles
Hand Sanitizing Wipes
Forehead Cooling Wipes
As a mom, I feel it’s important to be in good health when my kids are sick so I have the energy I need to take care of them. To help with moms health, I also put some Vitamin C packs in the kits for parents to take when kids are sick.
I also made a Make ‘n Freeze dinner. These dinners are great to make ahead of time and to freeze for when you don’t have the energy to cook. You can find many recipes by searching the term “Once a Month Cooking”. For my dinner I made Macaroni and Cheese.
1 2/3 cups dry, small elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1 teaspoon salt
1 (12 fluid ounce) can Evaporated Milk
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
Combine salt, evaporated milk, water, and butter in medium sauce pan. Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese until melted. Add macaroni; mix well. Top with remaining cheese. Cool then freeze. When ready to cook, thaw and then bake on 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and light brown.
Another idea, place single serving sizes of macaroni in muffin cups and freeze in a container.
Other ideas to include in a Sick Kit are items that can keep resting kids occupied such as a movie or a coloring book. Pedialyte has printable activities here:http://pedialyte.com/kids.aspx
