    Lemonade is a carbonated (fizzy) drink like Coca Cola, but lemon flavoured and clear. Flat lemonade is lemonade that has lost its fizz.

    Then no different between lemonade and flat lemonade?

    But why they give flat lemonade to sick children? They mix to it drug or is it something like effervescent ?

    I mean we say "lemonade" for lemonade with no fizzy. So there is no different for me between lemonade and flat lemonade ;)

    Flat lemonade is often given in cases of upset stomach because it's a palatable way to take fluids, if it were fizzy it might cause discomfort in the stomach. (not a doctor, just a parent).

    Well, in Germany we give our children flat cola and pretzel sticks. The idea is the same: When you are ill you need a lot a fluid and electrolytes. And it's easier to get kids to drink lemonade, then plain water or tea. Plus it's a small comfort.
