When my son was a toddler, my mom introduced her grandson to this lovely drink and he was hooked. Luckily we can purchase this at the Asian grocery stores and sometimes, even at regular grocery stores.
A word of warning though.... don't drink more than 2 containers in one day. It definitely works its way into your intestines. I had a nasty experience one year when our family was living in Malaysia and there was no Yakult. We went to HK for a holiday and I had missed the stuff so much I took one packet (5 containers), poured it into a glass and drank it. In short, I was in the bathroom pretty much for the next day.
There are imitations both from Taiwan and Korea. I've tried those too and none of them can compare to the original. Just try to pan those off on a toddler who has tastebuds -- he won't drink it. The imitations are far cheaper, but once you've tasted the original you won't even bat an eyelid and pay double for it rather than have to drink the fake stuff.
I'm not sure if Yakult is really THAT healthy because there is a fair amount of sugar in it but it sure tastes good!"
