'Hey you mob its Neville Jetta here from Melbourne Football Club
It’s important to keep fit, healthy and strong.
Think you need sports drinks to improve your performance? Think again. Sports drinks are gammin! - full of sugar your body doesn't need. Drink water you mob, eat healthy and get active, Especially if you have diabetes!
Did you know diabetes can affect your eyes as well?
It can damage your eyesight, making it hard to watch sport and even harder to play!
The best way to prevent this, is to have your eyes checked every year to protect your sight for years to come.
Remember, ‘Check Today, See Tomorrow’.
