Graduate Assistants

Who are the Carrots?  

The Carrots are graduate students in sport nutrition at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). With the message of healthy eating and active living, the Carrots offer their food literacy training to young people. Through hands-on learning, the Carrots teach nutrition in a tasty, refreshed, and playful way, while not compromising an evidence-based approach through the latest science in nutrition for exercise and sport.  


The Carrots believe that the best nutrition comes straight from the Earth—from Our Local Colorado Farmers!
