Abstract

Anaemia is a condition in which there is a decrease in red blood cells or haemoglobin levels in red blood cells caused by several factors such as chronic diseases, iron and folic acid deficiency, or chronic bleeding. Anaemia is one of the world’s nutritional problems, especially in developing countries, including Indonesia. According to RISKESDAS 2013, the number of stunting children in Indonesia had reached 37% (estimated 9 million toddlers) One of the factors that can cause stunting is anaemia during pregnancy. This research aims to determine whether there is a correlation between anaemia-related knowledge of mothers who have children aged 2-5 years old with the incidence of stunting. The research used in the study used analytical research with a cross-sectional method. The data was collected using questionnaires distributed to mothers who have children at the age of 2-5 years in Mekarbakti Village, Sumedang District, West Java. The study results showed that the incidence of stunting is higher in the group of respondents who have better knowledge of anaemia. The conclusion is that there is no correlation between the level of anaemia- related knowledge of mothers who have children aged 2-5 years with the incidence of stunting in Mekarbakti Village (P Value> 0.05). Keywords: Anemia, Stunting, Toddler
