Anyone else take one look at a carrot and suddenly hear their mother bellowing, “you better eat your carrots or you’ll get bad eyesight!“? I used to hear this every. single. time. carrots were present at the dinner table growing up, so much so that it’s only of my earliest memories.
Thing is, Mom was right: carrots are great for your vision, but also for so much more. Carrots are full of beta-carotene (that strong orange pigment) which converts to vitamin A once consumed. Vitamin A also promotes growth and development as you continuously grow and develop throughout your life, aids your immune support and promotes healthy – you guessed it – eyesight.
