Trick Or Treat: Woman To Give 'Obesity Letters' To Overweight Children This Halloween Instead Of Sweets

Posted: Updated:

On Halloween, when children dress up in their scariest costumes to play trick or treat on their neighbours, they expect to fill their bellies with sweets and chocolate.

But this year, one woman has something a little different up her sleeve. Each trick or treater that she considers to be overweight will be given an 'obesity letter' instead of sweets.

The woman, known only as 'Cheryl', shared her (evil?) plan during an interview with Y94 radio station in Fargo, North Dakota.

She says she wants to "send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight". But is it really Cheryl's place to comment or should parents take responsibility for their child's weight?

When we asked our readers for their thoughts, they said Cheryl's plan was ridiculous and judgemental. Do you agree?

Let us know on the Facebook post below.
