Woman hands out letters, not candy to 'overweight' children

A North Dakota woman said she’s not planning on handing out candy to children she believes are “moderately obese.” Instead she’s giving them letters.

The woman’s plan to take childhood obesity in her own hands is sparking much controversy after she called into a Fargo, N.D. radio station early Tuesday morning.

"I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," a woman only known as Cheryl said. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just because all the other kids are doing it.""I'm contributing to their health problems, and really, their kids are everybody's kids.”

The letter, in part says, “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.”
