Halloween Candy Replaced With Concerned Letter

Woman Serves Concerned Letter, Not Candy, to "Obese" Trick-or-Treaters

Halloween Candy

And you thought healthy candy would ruin your child's Halloween.

Instead of treats, a woman in Fargo, ND, plans on giving the children she deems obese a letter that encourages healthy habits. During an interview with Y94, the anonymous woman said that she thinks, "it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it." To make parents think twice about their decision, and their child's future habits, she composed the following letter:

"Happy Halloween and Happy Holidays Neighbor!

You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard the saying, 'It takes village to raise a child?' I am disappointed in 'the village' of Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo."

Read the rest of her letter!

"Your child is, in my opinion moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season.


My hope is that you will step up as a parent and ration candy this Halloween and not allow your child to continue these unhealthy eating habits.

Thank You"

The woman hopes to send a message that "kids are really overweight" and parents need to take action.

Do you think her letter crosses the line?

I'd like to know this person's eating habits before she criticizes others. Pathetic.

This is the most outlandish treatment of a child that I can imagine. Way to go you cruel cold hearted person! Have you ever thought that the child you are insulting has feelings? Or a medical condition? Or is very subconscious about his/her weight and will eventually develop an eating disorder that may kill them? Or commit suicide over something a "so-called" adult said about them. Give it up lady. You shouldn't be allowed near children, or the disabled, or the elderly, or different ethnics, or the public in general. Shame on you, may your life be a living hell. Remember that just in case some day you have a problem or are disfigured in some way. Remember your own cruelty. You are not doing these children any favors by throwing it in their face. We are all God's children like it or not.

Totally crosses the line. If she feels that strongly about it, just don't hand out candy at all. Turn off the porch light and don't answer the door. Accomplish the same goal without shaming the children.
