Why do we throw up and what is puke?


Why do we throw up and what is puke? Maya had a little flu overnight. So we talked about what that does to your body. The next day she wanted to know about throwing up and puking. It’s always good to talk about things that are hard for kids to experience so that they can learn and feel OK about it. Once she learned that puking is a natural thing and that it’s a process to make the body feel better, she was more curious about it. In this episode we talk about voluntary and involuntary processes in the body. We also talk about defense mechanisms of the body.
