NORTH DAKOTA (WGHP) — A woman says she plans to take childhood obesity into her own hands this Halloween by handing out letters instead of candy.

According to ValleyNewsLive.com in Fargo, the woman said this Halloween she will give out letters instead of candy to trick-or-treaters who she feels are “moderately obese.”

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight … I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman told Y-94 during a morning radio interview.

The woman’s identity was not revealed.
