Digestive System

In this movie, you'll learn about the digestive system, which is in charge of moving food through your body. When you eat, you chew and swallow, sending food down your throat and into your esophagus. The food then moves through a number of organs, like your stomach, small intestine, and colon. Nutrients like calcium, protein, and fiber are absorbed as you digest your food. Do you know how to care for your digestive system? Watch the movie to find out how to stay healthy and avoid stomachaches!
