An apple juice a day? – Don't Forget the Bubbles

Pippi, aged 3, has been a little bit unwell of later.  Most of her family have had viral gastroenteritis and she has now got it too.  She’s been vomiting for the last 24 hours and is struggling to keep anything down.  Her parents are concerned that she is becoming dehydrated so they bring her into the ED.  She gets a sublingual ondansetron wafer and tries some oral rehydration solution.  “Yeuch!” she says as she spits it out, “That tastes disgusting.” You wonder if there is anything else you can try.
