Escape the Cold and Flu Season With a Free Vacation to the Sunshine State
Date:12/5/2007

LAKELAND, Fla., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you taking the proper steps to ward off colds and the flu to stay well this winter? If so, you could win a trip to Orlando. The Florida Department of Citrus will celebrate Americans taking steps to stay healthy this season with the Stay Well. Play Well. Florida Getaway Contest (http://www.floridajuice.com/getaway).

To enter, contestants should submit a 300-word essay describing their best kept secrets for good health and explain why they deserve to escape winter with a free trip to Orlando. The grand prize winner will receive a four day, three night all-expense paid trip plus a $1,000 cash prize for four to Orlando. A second prize winner will receive a $500 cash prize.

According to Gail Rampersaud, registered dietitian from the University of Florida, you can help your body stay strong to defend itself against disease and illness by making some key healthy lifestyle choices. "In addition to getting a flu shot, people need to get enough sleep, exercise regularly, reduce stress, and eat a nutritious diet," explains Rampersaud.

The secret to supporting a strong immune system may be in your refrigerator, says Rampersaud. "Simply drinking a glass of 100 percent orange juice each day, as part of a well-balanced diet, will provide your body with essential nutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, and folate, as well as a host of phytochemicals that may help support a healthy immune system."

Visit http://www.floridajuice.com/getaway between November 13, 2007 and January 21, 2007 to enter. A complete description of all prizes, official contest rules and more information about the Stay Well. Play Well. Florida Getaway Contest is available on the Web site.
