(STLMoms) - On Halloween night, some will get treats while others will get a letter.

One woman living in Fargo, North Dakota says she's tackling childhood obesity this Halloween.  The kids who are overweight will be handed a letter about being obese and no candy.

She says she does not want to contribute to the problem of overweight kids.  Psychologist warn a letter given out publicly in front of peers is more likely to hurt the child than help.
