In brief: Same

The "baby carrots" sold in stores are regular, fully-grown carrots cut into those little shapes.
They're not "baby"-- that's just a marketing term. If buying carrots cut and clean and in little shapes makes it more likely that you are your kids will eat them, go for it!

In brief: Not necessarily

"baby carrots" are actually regular carrots which have been trimmed to resemble baby carrots.
There is no health difference but there may be a convenience difference.
