Mini carrots make a great convenient and healthy snack when you're on the run, at the office, or relaxing at home. And the kids will love them, too! Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene, a natural chemical that the body changes into vitamin A. Carrots are also a great source of fiber, minerals and anti-oxidants! Pair some mini carrots with your favourite healthy dip or enjoy them steamed in a salad or stir-fry!
