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!
