What a pack of baloney. If they think all carrots are four inches long more or less, they are nuts. A four inch carrot is a BABY CARROT in my book. I have both varieties in my fridge, and the larger ones are seven plus inches long! I have no problem  with them chopping a four inch carrot so that children can handle them better. Besides, I don't care for the language on HuffPo. That is worse than the article.

I buy the whole carrots for cooking and for my own personal snacking. But I  buy the "cut and peeled carrots" (that's how they're labeled in my area) for my kids to pack in school lunches. Sometimes they snack on them at home, too. I'm well aware that these carrots are "more processed" than the ones I peel and cut at home, but frankly I need to set some limits. They're not THAT much more expensive or THAT much less healthy than the "Grown up carrots" and my kids eat more vegetables when I buy them in this form.

This is NOT worth getting all stressed out about- what's with the inflammatory language in the link?

I agree completely. I buy both too.
