Baby-Cut carrots, the popular snack, are a bit lower in vitamins and minerals than your standard carrot.  The majority of nutrients in carrots and in and just below the skin, and whittling a mature carrot into a baby-cut carrot eliminates the most nutritious part of the carrot.  I used to love baby-cut carrots, but once I tasted a carrot with its dark green, lush greenery still attached, I haven’t gone back.  Besides, a plastic bag of baby-cut carrots costs more than a simple bunch of carrots.  Save some money, grab a knife and    cut your own carrots, and taste what a carrot really tastes like.
