Abstract:Background: Nutritional status of toddlers is considered important since they are generally more susceptible to nutritional problem. Some factors that affect them is level of nutrient intake, which include level of energy intake, carbohydrate intake, and family income. Family income is associated with the ability to provide food, thus affecting the level of nutrient intake for the family.Objectives: The objective of the study was to analyze the correlation between incomes, level of energy and carbohydrate intake with nutritional status of toddlers aged 2-5 years in Lenteng sub-District, Sumenep.Methods: the design of this study was cross sectional. Sample size was 70 parents of toddlers aged 2-5 years in Lenteng sub-District, Sumenep. Weight and height of the toddlers were measured to determine the nutritional status of the toddlers. Interviews with parents were also conducted to determine the characteristic of the toddlers and the family income. Lastly, 2 x 24 hours food recall was used to examine the level of their nutrient intake. The data were analyzed by using Spearman correlation test with α= 0.05.Results: The results showed that 57.1% toddlers were in low income category. 65.7% toddlers were in inadequate level of energy intake. 95.7% were in inadequate level of carbohydrate intake. Prevalence of toddlers with normal nutritional status normal were 84.3%, 11.4% was malnourished, while 2.9% was severely malnourished. The result showed that level of energy intake and carbohydrate intake are related to nutritional status of toddlers (p=0.040) and (p=0.045). However, there was no correlation found between family incomes with toddlers' family income.Conclusions: Family income was not found to be related to the nutritional status of toddlers. While the lower level of nutrient intake can potentially affect nutritional problem among toddlers. Thus, an adequate nutrient intake is required to help toddlers meet their balanced nutritional needs.ABSTRAK Latar Belakang: Status gizi balita penting diperhatikan karena balita rentan mengalami masalah gizi.

Abstract:Background: The problem of stunting occurs in developing countries including Indonesia. In Indonesia the prevalence of child stunting is 30.8%, still above the world prevalence, which is 22.2%. The prevalence of stunting in sub-Saharan Africa is 34.5%, in Ethiopia is 52.4%, and the prevalence of stunting in Congo is 40%. While WHO stipulates that nutrition problems should not exceed 20%. Stunting could inhibit linear growth, development and degenerative diseases later in adulthood.Objective: This review discussed the risk factors of child stunting in developing countries.Discusion: One of the causes of increased stunting in children was due to inadequate nutritional intake in a long period. Stunting was often not realized by parents and only visible after the age of 2 due to low stature. Based on the results of the literature review the likelihood of stunting in developing country were: 16.43 times morelikely due to low birth length, 3.27 times higher due to maternal education, 2.45 times higher if the children were living in rural area, 4.5 times higher due to low birth weight, no risk Antenatal Care increase the risk 3.4 times, 6.38 times higher due to no immunization, and no exclusive breastfeeding increase the risk of stunting 4.0 times.Conclusion: The risk factor for child stunting in developing countries are exclusive breastfeeding, socioeconomic, low birth weight, length of birth, low maternal education, infectious disease.ABSTRAKLatar Belakang: Masalah stunting (stunting) yang terjadi di Negara Berkembang seperti Indonesia masih tinggi yaitu 30,8% masih di atas dunia yaitu 22,2%. Stunting di sub sahara Afrika 34,5%, di Ethiopia 52,4%, prevalensi stunting di Congo 40%. Word Health Organization sudah menentukan bahwa terjadinya masalah gizi suatu negara sebaiknya kurang dari 20%. Stunting memiliki risiko gangguan pertumbuhan, perkembangan dan penyakit degeneratif pada usia dewasa nanti.Tujuan: Review ini bertujuan untuk mengidentifikasi faktor risikos apa saja yang dapat menentukan terjadinya stunting anak di Negara berkembang.Ulasan: Berdasarkan dari beberapa hasil penelitian menyebutkan bahwa salah satu penyebab stunting pada anak adalah karena tidak terpenuhinya gizi yang baik pada kurun waktu yang panjang dan sering kali tidak disadari oleh orang tuanya sehingga setelah anak usia di atas 2 tahun baru terlihat bahwa anaknya mengalami stunting. Berdasarkan hasil literatur review menunjukkan bahwa faktor risiko terjadinya stunting adalah panjang lahir berisiko 16,43 kali, pendidikan ibu yang rendah berisiko 3,27 kali, serta anak yang tinggal di desa berisiko 2,45 kali, BBLR berisiko 4,5 kali, tidak ANC berisiko 3,4 kali, tidak imunisasi berisiko 6,38 kali, dan tidak ASI Eksklusif berisiko 4,0 kali adalah merupakan faktor risiko stunting anak di negara berkembang.Kesimpulan: Hasil sintesis ini secara konsisten yang menjadi faktor risikos terjadinya stunting pada anak di negara berkembang adalah tidak diberikan ASI eksklusif, sosial...

Abstract:Background : The hospital food acceptance is still a serious problem. The patient’s acceptance is indicated by the least amount of plate waste. High plate waste causes an intake incompatibility with nutritional needs, which ultimately affects malnutrition. The patient’s plate waste in obstetric and surgical room is still high ≥20%. The distribution timetable and food taste maybe a contributing factor.Objectives : To analyzed the correlation of distribution timetable and food taste with patient’s plate waste at obstetric and surgicall room in dr. Soebandi Hospital, JemberMethods: This study was an analytical survey with a cross sectional design. The sample was 51 subjects, taken by a purposive sampling. Sample were obstetric and surgical patients aged 18-60 years, received regular food and were in a conscious. The distribution timetable was obtained by observing the accuracy of food distribution time span from the kitchen of nutrition instalation untill food arrived at the patient for 3 days. Food taste was obtained through interviews and questionnaires. Plate waste was measured by visual comstock. Data were analyzed by Rank Spearman test.Results : The average plate waste of patients is 27.6%. The plate waste in male and female patient was significantly different (p=0.001). 52.9% subjects with large amounts of plate waste, get hospital food with the right distribution time. The distribution timetable wasn’t significantly correlated with plate waste (p=0.218). Subjects who considered their food taste good, almost all (71.4%) left little food. There was a significant positive correlation between taste of food and plate waste (p=0.001; r=0.471).Conclusions: Food distribution timetable isn’t related to patient’s plate waste. However, food taste is correlated with plate waste. The better of taste food, the less plate waste.ABSTRAK Latar Belakang : Penerimaan makanan rumah sakit masih menjadi masalah serius. Daya terima pasien ditunjukkan dengan banyak sedikitnya makanan tersisa. Tingginya sisa makanan menyebabkan ketidaksesuaian asupan dengan kebutuhan gizi yang akhirnya berdampak malnutrisi. Sisa makanan pasien di ruang obgyn dan bedah masih tinggi ≥20%. Jadwal distribusi dan citarasa makanan kemungkinan menjadi faktor penyebabnya.Tujuan : Menganalisis hubungan jadwal distribusi dan citarasa makanan dengan sisa makanan pasien di ruang perawatan obgyn dan bedah RSD. dr Soebandi Jember.Metode : Jenis penelitian ini survey analitik dengan rancangan cross sectional study.
