FARGO, N.D. (CBS Seattle) – A local woman has stirred up controversy after vowing to hand overweight children letters of warning about their health instead of candy this Halloween.

According to Valley News Live, the woman – identified only as Cheryl – recently called into the area’s Y-94 radio station to voice her concern regarding the health of children in her neighborhood.

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight,” she was quoted as saying. “I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy  just [be]cause all the other kids are doing it.”

The station subsequently obtained a copy of the letter.

“You are probably wondering why your child has this note; have you ever heard of the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child?’” the letter begins.

It later states, “Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese … and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween.”
