With her parents' impending divorce, nine-year-old Alana Thompson — better known as pint-sized beauty queen Honey Boo Boo — has a lot on her plate, emotionally. But now the health experts on The Doctors have expressed concerns that she may literally have too much on her plate as well.
After seeing the refrigerator at Mama June’s house, the doctors advised the reality stars about the dangers of childhood obesity.

Dr. Travis Stork warned, “Something that I’ve learned in the emergency department is the common culprit in a lot of these things is what you’re eating. And when I look in your fridge, Mama June, I’m sorry I didn’t see anything in that fridge that’s going to either improve Alana’s weight or decrease inflammation in her body.”
Dr. Jennifer Ashton took a more direct approach, declaring, “She is an obese nine-year-old.”

During the episode, which is scheduled to air tomorrow, Feb. 25, on CBS, the doctors held a “health intervention,” during which they introduced the Georgia natives to healthier options and reminded Mama June, “It all starts with you.”
Hopefully, the days of “sketti” and “go-go juice” are numbered for Alana and she can turn her health around — before it’s too late.
