Tongues help us to eat and taste the food we are putting into our mouth, but did you know you can also check the colour of your tongue for health problems? When you check in the mirror it should be pink and have small little bumps on it known as papillae, this is a healthy tongue. If you have a white coating on it, it could mean you are dehydrated or eating too much sugar. It could mean you lack other nutrients from your diet so make sure you are keeping everything as healthy as possible. Don't forget to drink a glass of water with your food too :)
