Your stomach connects the end of the oesophagus to your small intestine. It is shaped like a ‘J’ and can stretch when you eat or drink. Your stomach mixes your chewed food with lots of acids which break food into smaller and smaller pieces and kill any bacteria that you may have eaten by mistake. Your stomach doesn’t take any nutrients from the food but it is a really important part of your digestive system!
