The GutsWhat is my Intestine?
Your intestine is a very long tube that is curled inside your stomach. The two main parts of the intestine are the small intestine and the large bowel. Another word for the large bowel is 'colon'.


Where does my Food Go?

All of the food you eat moves from your stomach into your small intestine. Your body uses the food to keep you healthy. The extra food keeps moving down into your colon.

The waste passes through your colon and comes out when you use the toilet.
