5 Reasons To Include Carrots In Your Baby’s Diet

Like Popeye, Bugs Bunny was the unofficial ambassador of carrots! Bugs Bunny with all his wit, intelligence and humor made the orange stick a must-have vegetable. While today’s kids might not be familiar with Bugs Bunny’s notorious antics, today’s parents sure are, right? So, put on those Bunny ears and get your little one to eat carrots for the following reasons:

  1. Enhances healthy cell growth: Rich in iron, a whole range of vitamins, magnesium, and a whole lot of other minerals, carrots have the ability to regulate cell growth; ensure they’re controlled and checked and at the same time expedite their growth to assist the body during injuries/diseases.
  2. Bolsters Liver Functioning: Rich in plant-flavonoids and beta-carotene, carrots help improve the overall functioning of the liver. The vitamin A in carrots cleanse the liver which often becomes an easy victim for toxins collected through food or beverages.
  3. Improves Blood Circulation: Healthy blood circulation is not just about transporting oxygen through the heart and blood vessels but also about flushing out all the toxins off the body through the kidneys. The flavonoids in the carrots keep the circulation system in place.
  4. Improves Eye-sight: Vitamin A and beta-carotene in carrots are responsible for the growth and maintenance of the retina. Your baby will enjoy clear and sharp vision!
  5. Boosts Immunity: You can let your little one roam around on the grass or mud, without getting stressed about illnesses, if carrots are a big part of your baby’s diet. Carrots increase the number of blood platelets and lymphocytes, which play a vital role in strengthening the immune system. Let your baby be a baby.
