And she swears this is not being mean spirited. As far as she’s concerned, she’s looking out for the children’s health abd wellbeing.
Her plan is to give the unsuspecting child a sealed envelope containing a note for that child’s parents.
The letter, which Y94 says was emailed to them by the woman, reads in part:
“You [sic] 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.”
When asked by the hosts of the show why she didn’t give out toys or stickers instead of candy, the woman, who identified herself only as Cheryl, said she didn’t want to be the “mean lady” in the neighborhood. The woman also said that she doesn’t plan to deny candy to any of the children who visit her house.
“Well really, I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight. It’s just, these kids, I can see them and they’re struggling to stay healthy and they want to play with the other kids, and I think it’s really irresponsible for parents to send them out looking for free candy just because all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said.
Corey “Zero” Schaffer, one of radio hosts who conducted the interview, said they plan to follow up with the woman to see if she carried out her plans.
