The present study corresponds to a quali-quantitative research which inquired into usersíperception of the Recovery Program of the Child in Nutritional Risk ìNutrirMásî, in Santa Fe city urban area in the last trimester of 2007. Specifically, it aimed at identifying the perceptions related to the programís components: training workshops, health controls and alimentary assistance through tickets; programís positive and negative aspects; usefulness of knowledge gained in the upbringing daily tasks; and the relationship between beneficiaries and programís leaders in the workplace and the health staff. About 50% of the beneficiaries who had been in the program for more than a year, participated in a survey through a semi-structured interview. In general, the users reported a high level of satisfaction towards the activities proposed by the program and highlighted its importance for educational actions, the improvement of their knowledge and alimentary practices towards their underweight children, the diversification of daily feeding and the reinforcement of the emotional bond between mother and child. This research recognizes the importance of perception studies because they allow to improve the programís management and to be aware of the usersí satisfaction, as well.
