Description OBJECTIVE: In Indonesia, stunting is a nutritional problem that is a threat to the growth and development of toddlers since the beginning of life. The total stunting of children under-five in 2018 in Palu city was 30.8%. Hence, it is necessary to strengthen the system that supports the determination of continued government policies in achieving a reduction in the incidence of stunting.
METHODS: A case control with research subjects totaling 520 toddlers. The sampling technique used was proportional stratified random sampling at all Puskesmas Kota Palu.
RESULTS: There is a multifactorial relationship between knowledge variables (p = 0.019), children have been sick (p = 0.000), mother’s height (p = 0.050), and mother’s education (p = 0.000) against the incidence of stunting. Low knowledge has a chance of 1.581 times and the status of the child having been sick has a chance of 9.166 times the incidence of stunting.
CONCLUSION: Multiple factors play a role in causing stunting in the city of Palu. Analysis of factors related to the incidence of stunting in children under-five in the working area of the Palu City Health Center is considered necessary in supporting the government in determining policies to tackle stunting problems.
