Follow the amazing journey of a banana sandwich from the first moment it is chewed to the last moment it is pooed! Learn about the digestive system and the importance of having a healthy, well-balanced diet. Children will find out how our body absorbs the vitamins and minerals it needs and more amusingly how it gets rid of what we don’t need.
