Gather that this is for access or online course you are doing.

If so you should at least be given some information about what you are to do with this unit.
Bit more details about what the unit is about would be helpful.


I have not done a access or online course for midwifing as I went to university for my degree in midwifing as I'm now a NHS registered midwife.

-The structures and functions of the digestive system.
-The processes of mechanical and chemical digestion including the optimum conditions for the enzymes involved. You must discuss at least two specific named enzymes, for example, pepsin.
-The constituent food groups of a balanced diet and provide examples of their sources.
This is what is given to be able to do a powerpoint presentation and i just cant even begin to write about any of it.

Your starting point is this:
- what is the structure of the digestive system? (starts with the mouth, ends with the anus....)
- what are the functions of the digestive system? What does the mouth do? What does the oesophagus do?
- what are mechanical and chemical digestion?
- what conditions do enzymes need to work?
- pick 2 enzymes and talk about what they do.
- what foods come under each food group? How much of each classes as a "balanced diet"? Which foods come under each food group?
You should have covered this, and/or have materials on it, from the module teaching sessions to help you.
