DIETARY DIVERSITY AND STUNTING AMONG 6-23 MONTHS CHILDREN: COMMUNITY CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY IN EAST JAKARTA
The period from birth to two years of age is a “critical window” of opportunity for the promotion of optimal growth, health and behavioral development of children. Dietary diversity is an important immediate determinant of stunting children also feeding patterns combined with household food insecurity can lead to stunting children which is a major public health problem in developing countries like Indonesia.
A community based cross-sectional study that involved 120 participants from east Jakarta rural were conducted from February to March 2018. A consecutive sampling procedure was employed to select the required households. Multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed to compare stunting by feeding patterns and other characteristics.
The prevalence of child stunting in the current study Dietary diversity and child stunting 44 was 43,5%. Dietary diversity has association with stunting especially in the poorest economic status. Dietary education would be the most effective strategy to deliver messages about infant and young child feeding practices, especially on dietary diversity.
