    I know it's out of season, but when my DD did this once, I gave her watermelon. Found it peeled and cut up in the produce department.

     If he's sick, Gatorade. If he's just not drinking enough, try mixing lemon juice with water. My 4 year old BIL won't drink water either but tolerates it better if I add lemon to it.

    I agree, I did half water half juice until my son was 4. Straight juice would always upset his stomach. 

    Quoting TinkerBell2013:

    The drs told me to take and add water to the juice if the child gets a diahrea from drinking it. It always helped with my boys. They cant drink juice without getting a diahrea. 

    I would try to get him to drink pedialyte. They will keep him from getting dehydrated.
