What happens to food in your mouth?
Food enters the digestive system through the mouth.
Food is broken down into smaller pieces by chewing. The teeth cut and crush the food, while it’s mixed with saliva. This process helps to make it soft and easier to swallow.
After being swallowed, the food passes down the oesophagus and into the stomach.
