Home-made Pediolyte

I know this is totally out of the norm for this site, but my mom gave me this recipe that she got from a Pediatric Conference.
They did a taste test and this is what she said:
"One of the worst things to do for a child with diarrhea is to give them Coke, or anti-diarrhea medications. Really-the stuff you buy-have you ever tasted it? GROSS! This homemade stuff wasn't bad and cost about 2 cents compared to $5.35 a liter"
With flu season here
(and all the other stuff our kiddos get exposed to) I just thought I'd pass this along.

1 tsp salt
8 tsp sugar
1 liter clean (sterile or boiled) water
1/2 cup OJ or mashed Banana for flavor and potassium
