Question
Hello

are cut baby carrots good for you as regular carrot?


thx

Answer
HI Lili,

Yes, cut baby carrots and full-size carrots are the same nutritionally.  The difference is that baby carrots are either a variety of carrot that grows smaller or, as in many cases, are larger carrots that are cut and shaped into small carrots.  

So enjoy either size of carrot.
