Reality star Honey Boo Boo made a name for being her chubby, adorable self on Toddlers and Tiaras, and she even won her own TV show off the back of her regular appearances.

But Honey Boo Boo’s mother Mama June has recently come under fire for her daughter’s ‘dangerous’ weight.

Mama June was told that the 9-year-old blonde cutie- who weighs 9 stone- needs to lose between 12-25 pounds in order to help her asthma.

US TV show The Drs stepped in, providing Mama June and her family with ready prepared meals and a brand new kitchen complete with the latest appliances.

But during a filmed confrontation, the show’s Dr Travis Stork told her: "We sent you all these kitchen tools to help you cook and they're still in the boxes, haven't even been opened."

Mama June has reportedly been continuing feeding Honey Boo Boo a diet of sugary snacks and fatty meals.

Dr Jennifer Ashton explained: “It's incredibly concerning to us to see a child that's nine years old headed in only one direction. When you say this isn't a family issue, I beg to differ."

Mama June is also attempting to lashed the pounds, hoping to get rid of 226 pounds worth of extra weight with the help of a celebrity fitness trainer.
