Instead Of Candy, Mom Gives Trick-Or-Treater Letter About Their Looks

By  | 

A woman named Cheryl called into a local radio station in Fargo Moorhead, ND. Cheryl told the radio hosts that instead of giving out candy this year, she would be giving out a letter that tellsparents to stop giving their overweight children candy.

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight. I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” Cheryl said.

The letter reads:

“Happy Halloween and Happy Holidays Neighbor!

“You are probably wondering why your child has this note: Have you ever heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child?’ I am disappointed in ‘the village’ of Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo. You(r) 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.”

The letter quickly went viral many wondered if the woman was serious about it, but most parents did not agree with the message. There are plenty of other things to worry about on Halloween than a child’s weight.

Reporters from KETV asked a few kids and parents what they thought about the fat-shaming Halloween letter. Most of them weren’t too happy about it.
