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.
