ABSTRACT
Objective: to describe the importance of playing during the nursing actions in order to prevent anemia. Method: this is a descriptive review, which had undertaken a literature research of publications of the past ten years. Results: 118 items were found, of which thirteen were selected by choosing items that answered to the purpose of the study, and excluding those that were in English, published for over ten years and that did not address the purpose of the research. . Conclusion: it's responsibility of the nurse as a health educator, used to encourage this dynamic process in the most timely of its scope of work to try to reduce the number of new cases. Playing as a form of prevention is worthy due to its importance to child development, as is the union of learning and being happy.
