In addition to standard Pedialyte, Abbott also offers a formulation of liquid Pedialyte called Advanced Care, which includes probiotics to support digestive health. Pedialyte Advanced Care is available in blue raspberry and cherry punch flavors. Pedialyte Powder Packs consist of flavored dried powder that is mixed with water, and that product is available in strawberry, grape, apple and fruit punch flavors. The Pedialyte product suite also includes freezer pops available in grape, blue raspberry, cherry and orange flavors. Drugstores and other retailers, such as CVS, may offer pediatric electrolyte replacement products in similar fruit flavors.

DripDrop Inc. does not market its electrolyte replacement products exclusively for children, but its website describes the benefits of the product in treating pediatric dehydration attributable to diarrhea and vomiting, intense physical activity or fever. Developed by a Mayo Clinic-trained physician, the website claims that DripDrop "tastes better" than similar pediatric solutions and does not contain any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. DripDrop is available in lemon and berry flavors.
