Pedialyte is not recommended to be used all the time for a child. Its supposed to be used when they are vomiting, have diarrhea, or a sick stomach. Its not something they need everyday. Its for rehydrating the body that has lost a lot of hydration. It is also to be used under the instructions of a doctor. So I would say yes, it is bad to give it to her all the time. She needs milk and water at this age only to drink. If she is not sick do not be giving it to her.
