What Is Your Tongue Good For?

Tongue by m_e_l_o_d_y

People and most animals have tongues. Your tongue is good for three things:

  • Helping you eat food
  • Helping you taste food
  • Making funny faces

We taste food with our tongues to see if the food is good to eat or not.

Did you ever notice that your tongue is bumpy? The bumps you feel on your tongue are called taste buds. They’re the part of the tongue that lets you taste things.

You have about ten thousand taste buds on your tongue. There are different kinds of taste buds for different kinds of tastes: sweet, salty, savory, bitter and sour.
