Abstract: Various programs to combat malnutrition have been implemented over the years in Brazil. Since 2001, it has been the responsibility of the Bolsa Família Program (BFP). Despite the expansion of BFP, to date there has been little coverage charting the advances and challenges to be faced as well as the impacts on health and nutrition of the population. Although the monitoring of nutritional status is one of the conditions for continuing to receive the benefit, when searching for this data, there is great difficulty in obtaining them. The scope of this systematic review is to obtain information on the nutritional status of the beneficiaries of the PBF, to grasp the national reality with regard to this situation, and assess whether the program had an impact on the nutritional status of the population served. A search was conducted online via Medline, Bireme, SciELO, Lilacs, University Libraries System (ULS) and Google. The search includes original articles and theses from March 2002 through May 2012 and approximately100 works were located. After excluding the title there were 23 articles, and after reading the abstracts, 13 articles remained. The studies reviewed suggest that the Program is not modifying the nutritional status of the beneficiaries.
