No Candy, Just Fat Letters

 

Candy

Trick or treaters are not surprised anymore when they open their candy bag and see treats that are not candy.  With candy still the first choice for trick or treaters, plastic spider rings, halloween themed pencils and erasers and even toothbrushes still make an occasional appearance.  But one woman in Fargo, North Dakota has decided to change the rules and hand out letters.  The letters are not tricks and definitely not treats.

The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, has decided to take the fate of children and their weight into her own hands.  She will be handing out letters to trick or treaters who she feels are overweight, in an attempt to reach out to their parents.

The anonymous woman feels that parents are being irresponsible by sending out children to get free candy, just because everybody else is doing it.  She said in an interview that she just wants to voice her opinion about obesity and that it really takes an entire community to solve the obesity challenge.

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 Morehead, West Fargo.

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

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

Thank you.

It might be a good idea that she is remaining anonymous.
