Gandhi and The Sugar Story

One day a mother and her son went to visit Gandhi The mother needed help from
one of the worlds greatest leaders

It turns out the little boy had an obsession with sugar and she went to seek
Gandhis help on how to break her sons sweet addiction

Gandhi my son consumes far too much sugar will you please tell him its bad
for his health

After listening to the mothers plea patiently Gandhi refused to give the boy
advice and told her to return in two weeks

The mother left somewhat disappointed at Gandhis request
Two weeks latter they returned

Gandhi pulled the child aside and told him it would be best if he quit eating so
much sugar The boy did his best to cut back on sweets
