Baked Carrot Fries

Quick 15 minutes helathy Baked carrot fries are perfect for kids evening snacks. This is one nice way to make kids eat carrot.

Carrot is one vegetable which comes under top 5 least favorite veggies in my son’s list. I usually try to mix it with other veggies, and I hide carrots to make him eat. Most of the time even before tasting I would hear a big no from him. I always wonder how a kid with sweet tooth is a not a fan of a vegetable with mild touch of sweetness.


Few weeks back when my son had a play date, I made sweet potato fries for the kids, and I saw them eating happily. That’s when I thought of trying carrot fries. If it works carrot might be the next broccoli for him. Yeah broccoli was another vegetable he never tasted, until baked broccoli was experimented. Now a days it has become one of his frequently wanted vegetable.
