Eat Them to Defeat Them – Carrots!

Eat Them to Defeat Them – Carrots!

Posted On: 02 Mar 2022

Shout Out to all our TLC colleagues taking part in Eat Them To Defeat Them this year.

Week 1’s focus is carrots. We’ve been seeing carrots everywhere – fitting since they are great for eyesight!

They contain so many health benefits, that we thought we’d create a little ditty about the tremendous carrot!


Carrots have been around for thousands of years

The first ones were purple or white

Whilst they don’t really help you see in the dark

They boost immunity and help with eyesight!


They’re also really great for hydration

And they have some very cool names

Like Yellowstone, Hercules and Romeo

Getting kids to eat more is one of our aims.


They’ll get more benefit eating them cooked

Like mashed, pureed or as part of a stew

And there are tons of good nutrients in them

So come on, give carrots a bite or a chew!
