Ive gave my son some before, but someone told me that gatorade is actually bad for you. He said gatorade should only be used by people who work out. Is this true? Should I not give it to my son anymore?

When my daughter was about 6wks she started running 106 fever and i didn't have any pedialyte, her doctor said give her gatorade until i could get some pedialyte, it just has alot of sugar in it.
