Junior football players will face a change to their eating habits this weekend.

The Junior Football League has organised a healthy eating round, where aspiring AFL players in the Auskick competition will swap the chips for an apple and a muesli bar.

League chairman Scott Dunn said the idea was prompted by several broken bones and injuries on the field in the higher grades.

“We’re looking at increasing a bit of calcium,” Mr Dunn said.

“We’ll be offering them with a piece of fruit, a muesli bar and a glass of milk.

“We’re hoping they’ll take it on board.”

He said Woolworths have supplied the fruit, and Foodland the muesli bars
