I didn't understand much about digestion, and thought that once food entered your body, it stayed there. I believed that it began filling your feet immediately after you were born and would continue filling your body until it reached your throat, preventing you from breathing. I thought that being "full" was the reason people died when they were old.
When grown ups said my food had gone down the wrong hole if I choked on something, I believed that there was a hole for food and a hole for drink. I got confused as to how food and drink knew to go down the right holes.
When I was a little girl about 5 or 6, I use to be the pickiest eater and never eat much of my dinner. One week when i went to stay with my grandmother she noticed this and wanted to change this habit. So she told me that if i didnt eat, i would dry up and blow away. I believed her and I would cry and cry thinking i was going to blow away and never be able to see my family ever again. one night when i didnt finish my grandmothers dinner (she made me eat beats yuck!) I thought " this is it, im going to blow away tonight." so i snuck downstairs that night and found something i actually liked in the panchery and ate as much as i could. I thought i had saved myself, untill my parents came to pick me up and told me it wasnt true. they werent too happy with grandma

I used to believe that my digestive tract consisted of a log assembly line and that there were tiny factory workers, with hair nets and smocks, carefully pulling out the nutrients from my food. What had no value to my body was the waste... and that is how food became poop.

Mum used to tell me not to drink whild having food in my mouth, so i thaugt that we have one pipe for liquids and one for food, and that you could swallow the food/ liquid into the wrong pipe. I realized when I was 15 that this was wrong!
I used to belive that when I ate, all the food went into the stomach and stayed there. I thought that it was evil to eat food, I thought that the food, like potatoes, had they're own personallities, could talk and stuff like that. So when I ate another potato, I thought that the other potatoes would have a new friend to play with.xD

I used to believe that there were little workers inside of my stomach that would separate the food into different compartments as it came down from my mouth/throat. Otherwise, how would it know where to go?
I used to believe that there was a hungry creature inside my belly, and that when it started growling it was demanding to be fed. I thought that if I didn't feed it, it would start to eat me from the inside! I was always afraid that I would be stuck outside playing somewhere and wouldn't be able to make it home in time to feed it when it got hungry.
I used to believe that the food we ate stayed in side of us forever.I didn't know about the whole digestive system thing.I would imagine humans as a pile of food covered with skin.
My earliest memory in sitting in preschool at snack time eating, but taking little bites and chewing quickly because I didn't realize you could breath out of your nose if there was something in your mouth. All the sudden it hit me and I felt like I discovered something amazing.
