According to, the woman plans to give the letter to kids she thinks are moderately obese.  She thinks parents of obese kids are being irresponsible by sending them out trick-or-treating for candy on Halloween and she’s hoping her letter makes that point.  Here’s part of the letter:

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.

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.


I think this woman is way out of line.  While it’s true obesity is a major issue for American kids and adults, I don’t think it’s appropriate to give a trick-or-treater a  letter telling them they’re fat and not deserving of candy.  It’s not her place and imagine how these kids will feel when they see what the letter says.

Why not give all kids, not just the kids she determines are obese, healthy snacks instead, like raisins or popcorn?  That way nobody is singled out and Halloween won’t be a disappointment.  What do you think?
