Homemade Lemonade Recipe to Keep Child Dehydrated in Summer
Reviewed by Expert panel

Your child’s summer holidays are here, and so are your worries about keeping her dehydrated. What is the easiest way to keep your child hydrated this summer? She always forgets to drink water, or she doesn’t want to have plain water, and one fine day she told me she’s bored with lemonade as well. She was demanding fizzy drinks which I’m totally against. So I decided to take matters into my own hands. I started trying new drinks which include lemonade or drinks with lemon (it builds immunity).
