Methods: The research method used was the quantitative and qualitative method twelve interviews were done with nutritionists from the Primary Health Network of 8 municipalities located in the metropolitan region of Campinas. The instrument used was a semi-structured questionnaire with open and closed questions. Following the individual interviews, the focal group technique was applied to 5 nutritionists from different municipalities. Results: The professionals have varied work contracts. The following functions performed by the professionals stand out: individual prescriptions and dietary guidance, speeches for groups, campaigns, participation in supplementation programs, sanitary surveillance and home visits. Conclusion: We conclude that less than half of the municipalities have a nutritionist available at the Primary Health Network: the number of nutritionists is insufficient, the nutritionists tend to accumulate functions in different sectors and there is a prevalence of assistance activities in detriment of health promotion activities.
