  • Objective: To characterize the oral health conditions and nutritional status in children from 0 to 5 years old who attend the foundation: Trabajando Por Una Vida Digna - FUNTRAVIDI of the El Codito neighborhood in the first semester of 2020 in the city of Bogotá. Scope: It is aimed at children under 5 years of age who attend the FUNTRAVIDI Foundation of the El Codito sector in Bogotá: parents and / or guardians and educational references of the foundation, to strengthen their capacities in the promotion of appropriate habits and practices that favor quality of life and oral and nutritional health care, through a process of self-care, oral hygiene habits and nutritional habits. Results: Diagnoses that allow the identification of nutritional and oral health problems in early stages. Control of the risks that may arise according to the nutritional and oral health status. Greater knowledge of parents regarding their children's nutrition and oral health. Conclusions: The program seeks to reach the foundation's early childhood population by performing oral health and nutrition intervention in order to improve or reduce nutritional and oral health risk. By evaluating the nutritional and oral health status of children under 5 years of age, it will be possible to identify the shortcomings and alterations present, to be able to be intervened in a timely manner and in this way to guarantee quality of life and well-being. 4 From our experience with the internship, we can conclude that the foundations in oral health and early childhood nutrition are directly related to the adoption of adequate eating and brushing habits. Nutritional habits are associated with the development of cavities in all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and place of residence. Therefore, activities for the implementation of prevention and promotion programs for oral health and nutrition should be approached from a multidisciplinary point of view aimed at improving nutritional habits at the family level.
