  • Sarwinanti, Kiki Andriyani

Abstract

Stunting is stunted growth (low growth). Short toddlers are toddlers with nutritional status based on
height according to their age (TB/U); the z-score value is less than -2 SD and very short if the z-score
score is less than -3 SD. The objective of this study is to determine the factors associated with the
incidence of stunting in toddlers aged 24-59 months. This research method applied an analytic survey
with a cross-sectional approach. The samples in this study were toddlers aged 24-59 months, totaling 172
toddlers. The sampling technique used proportional stratified random sampling. The instruments used
microtome and questionnaire. This study concludes that there is a relationship among LBW history,
family economic status, maternal height, maternal education with the incidence of stunting toddlers, and
there is no relationship between the accounts of exclusive breastfeeding and the prevalence of stunting
toddlers. The history of LBW is a dominant factor related to the incidence of stunting of toddlers aged 24-
59 months in Sidoluhur Village, Godean, Sleman
