In brief: Clear fluids

Give small amounts of pedialyte of chicken broth sweetened with a small amount of sugar to prevent dehydration.
If you start with 1/2 tsp every 10-15 minutes you can often give enough fluids to prevent or treat dehydration. Increase amount of 1/2 tsp every hour or so as tolerated. Your child sounds like one the pediatrician should see. May want to do a rapid strep screen & assess for dehydration.
