Whereas data from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia in 2017 showed that the prevalence of under- fives nationally with stunting was 29.6%. At provincial level, West Java ranked 26th with 35.3% as the number of stunting incidence. Sumedang District is one of 100 districts assigned as the main focus for stunting intervention program. In addition, Malaka Village in Sumedang District is one of 1,000 villages in Indonesia designed to be intervened as it held a high incident of children suffering from stunting.

The total sample of the study was 62 children, determined through accidental (convenience) sampling. Malaka Village had a prevalence of stunted children at a percentage of 27.4%. From univariate analysis with Spearman’s Rho correlation test, birth length and exclusive breastfeeding showed significant associations with stunting while other factors failed to demonstrate such associations.
