Did you know that carrots are a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium? Carrots are also a good source for Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Maganese.
Mom was right. Carrots do make your eyes shiny! Beta-Carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin (all found in carrots) are some of the finest nourishment that help the optic system in tip-top condition.
EAT YOUR CARROTS DAY at Fernbank is set for April 14. If you are buying lunch that day, choose steamed carrots as your side. If you are bringing a lunchbox, either bring your own carrots (especially if you prefer them raw!) or purchase a side of steamed carrots from the lunch line.
