Carrots, like any brightly coloured fruits and vegetables are a rich source of vitamins, in the case of carrots, the pre cursor to vitamin A – beta-carotene, which gives them their rich orange flavour. Vitamin A is one of the nutrients responsible for cell regeneration, helping us to see in the dark and for a healthy immune system. Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant.

Carrots are also a good source of Vitamins C, E and dietary fibre. Just one carrot each day will provide a child with almost their entire daily requirement of beta-carotene, so serve them chopped with dips, in ring with honey sauce for dinner or as a delicious snack on their own for a tasty nutrition hit.
