Week 2: What happens to the food we eat?
Welcome to Week 2 of the course.
This week, you will find out what happens to food after you eat it.
By the end of this week’s study you should be able to understand:

- how different foods are broken down to allow their absorption
- what each food group does in the body for metabolism.
In the following video, Audrey Brown from The Open University finds out what some of the members of staff at the University know about their digestive system.
