Integral care for children in Primary Health Care sustains the articulated and interactive work between the team, family, and community. Nevertheless, this proposal has not been made operational through daily care practices. Thus, we asked which factors limit the practice of integral primary care for children and subsequently developed this qualitative study based on the Grounded Theory. Data was collected involving twenty-nine people in five sample groups, using semi-structured interviews. The category 'Outlining a path for integrality among difficulties' and its subcategories presented themselves. We conclude that limiting factors for the integrality of care were comprehended based on policy, institutional, physical, and managerial structures as well as professional and personal aspects among health care professionals, which includes the profile, the work process, and the principles chosen to develop care practices
