Would something like Pedialyte be better? Many brands, plus I am almost certain that this sort of thing can be found powdered. Not supposed to exclusively use electrolyte solutions for re-hydration over long period, but it's just the ticket for starting re-hydration. IMHO, these are far better - especially for infants and kids - than a sports drink.

Edit: Here's an example - Gookinaid Hydralyte - it's powdered and claims to be even faster than Pedialyte. Caveat Emptor, of course, but this sounds better than GatorAid.

I would agree that if you're concerned about a situation like vomiting and diarrhea, there are better things out there than Gatorade, and you can even use stuff you find at home to mix up your own rehydration solution. If you didn't see it already, we had a discussion a few weeks ago on the topic here.
