Date:6/10/2009

Contest promotes steps to a healthier lifestyle, offers chance to win a Whirlpool(R) LATITUDE(TM) refrigerator

DALLAS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The first step in maintaining a healthy lifestyle starts in the refrigerator, but it can be difficult when the refrigerator is filled with tempting, empty-calorie foods. The Freshen Up Your Fridge contest sponsored by Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese encourages Americans to freshen up their refrigerators by removing unhealthy items and adding more fresh, all-natural foods. One grand prize winner of the Freshen Up Your Fridge contest will receive a year's supply of Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese, a spacious new Whirlpool LATITUDE refrigerator and an in-home visit by a registered dietitian to help them learn how to select healthier foods for their refrigerators.

"So many Americans try to eat healthy, but don't realize that many foods contain unnecessary additives and preservatives," said Kim Galeaz, registered dietitian. "I'm partnering with Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese to show how simple it is to freshen up your refrigerator and choose more great-tasting, nutrient-rich foods, like Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese."

Kim's Top Five Fresh Refrigerator Tips Include:

  1. Fill your refrigerator with fresh fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. I recommend you load up on fresh, in-season Summer-time fruits and veggies, like apricots, blueberries, strawberries, broccoli, green beans, snow peas, spinach, and spring baby greens.
  2. Stock more nutrient-rich foods. Naturally nutrient-rich foods provide valuable vitamins and minerals, and have fewer preservatives and additives than most other foods. Fruits, vegetables and cottage cheese are three convenient and nutrient-rich snacks to keep on hand in your refrigerator for growing kids, teens and active adults.
  3. Focus on high-quality protein. High quality protein sources such as skinless fish, poultry, lean beef and pork, cottage cheese and eggs, provide all the essential amino acids necessary for building and repairing the body's cells and boosting immunity. One half-cup serving of Low Fat Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese is packed with 14 grams of high quality protein, yet contains only 90 calories. And compared to other high quality proteins, Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese is very budget friendly.
  4. Avoid the danger zone. If you want your foods to stay fresh and be safe to eat, keep your refrigerator at the proper temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below. To do this, you can invest in a refrigerator thermometer, keep it on one of the refrigerator shelves and check it regularly. Be sure to avoid the "danger zone" (40 to 140 degrees F), which can result in food spoilage, bacterial growth and family members getting sick.
  5. First in, first out. Keep fresh foods safe and at peak quality/taste by using the "FIFO" rule: First In, First Out. Use whatever items are the oldest first, and continually rotate foods to ensure freshness and reduce waste.

Beginning now through Aug. 31, 2009, consumers can log on to www.FreshenUpYourFridge.com to enter and share why and how their eating habits could be improved through a fresh refrigerator makeover. One lucky winner receive the spacious new Whirlpool LATITUDE refrigerator, which offers the industry's most usable space for fresh foods, among other exciting grand prizes.
