Little G loves carrots.
He wouldn’t eat other vegetables.
In fact, the only two things he eats now are carrots and broccoli.
So I make carrots for him every few days.

I always use baby carrots when it comes to roasting carrots; first, it’s less work for me as I don’t have to peel and clean the regular carrots.
Secondly, kids just love baby carrots.
Some baby carrots are thin and long, while others are short and bigger, so adjust your roasting time to get to your desired texture.
I like my carrots fork-tender and it took about 25 minutes to roast them in the oven.
You may use regular carrots, the recipe works the same but just adjust your roasting time!
