Hydralyte Orange Flavoured Electrolyte Ice Blocks
16 x 62.5 mL Ice Blocks Per Pack
Helps replace electrolytes lost due to vomiting, diarrhoea, heavy sweating and other dehydrating conditions.

When children and adults are sick and suffering from nausea, sucking slowly on the frozen Ice Blocks makes it easier to rehydrate.
