April 4 – National Carrot Day

National Carrot Day is a food holiday that celebrates one of the world’s most popular vegetables. Carrots are believed to have originated in Afghanistan and were first cultivated in Persia. The orange carrot we know today was developed in the Netherlands in the 16th century. Carrots are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They are also low in calories and fat. National Carrot Day is a day to eat carrots in all forms, including raw, cooked, juiced, or in a carrot cake.
