Baby carrots are just yummy little ready to eat healthy snacks. They can be prepared so many different ways. We eat them raw, baked, steamed and even boiled. You can even juice them.

Whether you need a specific weight of carrots for a delicious new recipe, counting calories or even learning how to meal prep, you may want to know how much baby carrots weigh.

In fact, what inspired this post was my journey towards weight loss. Counting calories and tracking everything I eat. But, weighing stuff out every time is a pain.

My daughter and I grabbed a 2lb bag of baby carrots from the grocery store and our food scale and set to work figuring out how many baby carrots we need for some of the most common recipes and portion sizes.
