Carrots are one of the healthiest vegetables as they contain a lot of essential vitamins like A, K, B1, B2, B5, and B6, as well as a lot of iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, and chlorine. In addition, carrots are a low-calorie product, with only 35 kilocalories per 100 grams. Experts recommend eating carrots for people with diabetes, and especially for children.
