Super Food Tip: Baby carrots

Baby carrots may be the healthiest most convenient grab-and-go super foods. Their size and packaging makes it easy to throw in your lunch box. They are loaded with nutrients, hydration and only 30 calories per cup. Their most notable offerings are vitamin A, the powerful antioxidant beta carotene, fiber, and they are a good plant source of iron. Baby carrots are sweet, crunchy and satisfying. They easily go anywhere as a snack or with almost any meal.
