In developing countries as Brazil, where the child malnutrition is a problem of public health, and the lack of minimum conditions of survival is still an problem to be over-come by millions of inhabitants, the incentive for the breastfeeding is shown as an effective measure of promotion of health. The lactation is one in the most efficient ways of assisting to the aspects nutritional, immunological, psychological and to a child's development in his first year of life. The breathing, the deglutition, the mastication and the fonoarticulation constitute functions developed during the breastfeeding and any unbalance in this system, created by the type and period of breastfeeding can generate suction needs not satisfied, propitiating the acquisition of noxious habits to the health and of malocclusion. The prevention of the malocclusion becomes a reason for the emphasis in the orientation of the lactic. Pregnant and children are part of the priority groups in the health services, assisting the guidelines of SUS and PSF. As evaluation strategy and accompaniment of the basic attention, Ministry of Health is promoting the development of administration methodologies for continuous improvement of the quality for PSF.
