Health Links Wednesday Getting kids interested in their digestive health is about as easy as getting them to choose cauliflower over cupcakes, but thanks to Discovery Health’s “Digestive Machine”, now they can get an inside look at just what happens after every mouthful!

This interactive diagram (complete with gurgling, sloshing sounds!) is such a great idea, even I had fun rolling my mouse over the different parts of the digestive system and reading fun facts like how our esophagus muscles work to push food toward the stomach even if we’re upside down or in space.

The Digestive Machine is a terrific resource to help kids learn about the importance of good digestion and how the food we eat supplies our bodies with nutrients for energy and growth, so be sure to check it out!
