If you’re trying to find new ways to add more vegetables into your child’s picky diet, carrots are the way to go. They are easy to hide in recipes, as they take on other flavors pretty well. Carrots are packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. Evidence suggests that eating more antioxidant-rich vegetables can help reduce the risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Carrots are also rich in minerals and fiber!
