Carrots are one of the leading sources of beta-carotene, which the body converts into the active form of vitamin A as needed. Vitamin A is important for its role in promoting vision and bone growth. Along with the many nutritional benefits of carrots, they are also a wonderful addition to comfort foods such as soups, stews, stuffing, meatloaf, casseroles, and salads.
