Eat them like junk food! Thats the slogan of the new, over-the-top advertising campaign for baby carrots. I put baby in quotes because they arent.
I hate to be the one to break this to you but baby carrots are plain old ordinary adult carrots, cut and scraped into baby-size pieces.
Mind you, Im a nutritionist and we do love carrots. And the CDC says only about one-quarter of Americans eat three servings of vegetables a day.
Well, at least they arent marketing these to kids. For that, we have to go back a few years to the Sponge Bob baby carrots of 2006 or so (see below). I havent seen those packages lately. Guess that idea didnt work.
