Nothing says happy and healthy like an image of children harvesting, cleaning, or eating a carrot. Seriously, not everyone likes carrots, but when you see a child gardening, harvesting carrots, preparing them, or eating a bunch of carrots, you just know there is something good, wholesome, and healthy about that image. And of course, it doesn’t have to be carrots – beets, cabbages, cucumbers, etc. all work too.
