Local Carrots are this week’s Healthy Snack

Naturally sweet and high in fiber, carrots are a great source of vitamin A and beta-carotene. Vitamin A is vital for vision as it forms part of a protein that absorbs light in the eye. It also supports cell growth and is essential in heart, lung, and kidney function.

Carrots are great for dental health as they kill harmful germs in the mouth and prevent tooth decay.

One medium carrot has 25 calories.
