Abstract

The purpose of this short communication was to promote reflection on the challenges of weaning from enteral diet, in a child patient with craniofacial anomaly. It approaches the fear and anxiety on the part of the child, who still does not present a favourable maxillomandibular and occlusal relationship to the performance of the functions of chewing and swallowing. It seeks to raise the impact of emotional insecurity of family members, guardians and caregivers in this process and the need for consensus among health team professionals regarding the time for this removal.
