Cinnamon Roasted Carrots
My family has been in love with this recipe for about a month now, and I love it too! It's a great way for us to get an orange vegetable in our diets, and even one of our pickiest eaters loves this recipe.
Red/orange vegetables are high in antioxidant vitamin A. According to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, adults should aim for at least 5.5 cups of red/orange vegetables a week.1 This recipe can help you get one step closer to that goal.
This recipe provides a good source of fiber, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It's also high in vitamin A and is about 1 carb serving.
I also love this recipe, because it's a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen. Younger children can be involved in the washing process, while middle school age and above can be involved in the peeling or even cutting. The more kids are involved in the food prep process, the easier it is to convince them to give even vegetables a taste...or 2!
