"Spit, Guts and Poop:" Digestion Start to Finish

Kids Workshop
Sunday 7/27, 12:30-2:00 pm

Have you ever wondered what happens to food after you put it in your mouth? How do our eyes and nose influence hunger and taste? If you're hungry to know more about stomach rumblings, saliva, and gas, join us as we have some fun with physiology.

Feel-good, philosophical take-home message: No matter what we look like on the outside, we're all the same on the inside!

Presented by Melinda "Food Sleuth" Hemmelgarn, M.S., R.D.

1. Hunger:
2. Sight à Salivation
3. Blindfolded Taste Testing
4. Esophagus; stomach; intestines: how long?
5. Flatulence
Reading the Children’s Book: "Walter the Farting Dog"
6. Poop
Reading the Children’s Book: "Everyone Poops."

Take home message:
We're all the same inside; Our bodies are miraculous machines!
