The Northfield Area Family YMCA's Registered Dietitian, Curwin Gett has some great advice on protein this week. Visit the Y website for more QuickBites Tips from Curwin.
How much protein do we need, and what are the best sources?
Although protein is an important part of a healthy diet, the truth is most Americans actually eat about twice as much protein as we need. Protein is a very important nutrient and is part of every cell in the body. Therefore, it is vital for the building and repair of the body’s tissues.

Whether it’s sliming their favorite counselor, learning a new stroke in swim lessons, collecting cool bugs or simply making a friend, Y Navigatros is a place for everyone to feel like they belong. We are here to welcome each kid for who they are and to help them grow mentally, physically and emotionally. Each day will bring fun and exciting opportunities for your child to try new things, get outside their comfort zone and walk away with a sense of accomplishment.

Northfield Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Salutes Military Kids
The Northfield Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network proudly joins the military and Veteran communities in celebrating April as the Month of the Military Child. From deployments to new schools, military children face unique challenges most youth their age never experience. Their ability to adapt must be applauded, their courage must be recognized and their hard work must be celebrated.
It is estimated that aver 15,000 children in Minnesota have been affected by a parent’s deployment and that number continues to grow. We are encouraging our community to join together and honor our military youth for their sacrifices, for their courage, and for the important contribution they make to the strength of the military family.
