Homemade Electrolyte Solution

We have been hit by the stomache bug. All of the children have had the usual symptoms. And it worries me when I can't get them to drink..ANYTHING. They do not drink Pedialyte or gatorade, etc. So some years ago I stumbled upon this homemade recipe for an electrolyte solution that I have used. It tastes like salty water but not too salty. I give them this alittle at a time and it seems to really help with the stomache bug symptoms.

5 cups of water boiled
8 level tsp sugar
1 level tsp salt

Stir together until sugar/salt is dissolved. Wait until cooled to serve.

It is really simple and I think there are other ways to make this.... I am just relaying what my family uses in hopes to help anyone else that may be in the same situation.
