Nutrition Alert for Toddlers
Among the nutritional problems for children under five in Indonesia are divided into 3 areas, namely stunting, wasting and underweight.
Riskesdas 2018 shows stunting (height for under-standard age) in children is the most common form of malnutrition in Indonesia which affects 30.8% of children under five. Although there are indications of improvement, the stunting rate remains high in the eastern and westernmost regions of Indonesia with the lowest rate of 17.7% in DKI Jakarta and the highest rate of 42.6% in East Nusa Tenggara.
Wasting (underweight for height) is also a major nutritional challenge affecting 10.2% of children under five. Children who were wasted had an 11.6 times greater risk of death than well-nourished children and those who did survive could continue to have developmental problems throughout their lives.
Underweight, which reflects both stunting and losing, affects 17.7% of children under five.
Responding to the above phenomena, handling toddler nutrition is very important to be done together in an effort to resolve nutritional problems in Indonesia, especially in children.
