The food we eat has to be processed so we can get the nutrients out of it so we can keep our body healthy. This is how the digestive system does this: First you bite the food, the tongue and the teeth chew it.Then it goes through the stomach and it breaks down and churns the food. Then it goes through the small intestines which squeezes it along and absorbs the nutrients in to the body.Then in to the large intestines. The waste is pushed out when you use the toilet.
Did you know if your small intestines were uncoiled they would be as long as a bus!
Merry Christmas from Miss S. & Miss T.
