Summary: For children aged 6 months to 5 years old with gastroenteritis and minimal dehydration, oral rehydration with apple juice diluted 1:1 with water (or the child’s preferred oral fluid intake) may be associated with a lower likelihood of treatment failure and a lower likelihood of needing intravenous rehydration, compared to rehydration with an electrolyte maintenance solution.
