Stunting is a chronic nutritional problem caused by insufficient nutritional intake for a long time and can disrupt growth and development. Besides affecting physical growth, stunting can also affect haemoglobin levels. Stunting children havelower haemoglobin levels than non-stunting toddlers. This study aims to determine the relationship between haemoglobin concentration and physical and developmental growth in children aged two years - 5 years in Malaka Village, Sumedang, West Java. This study used an Analytical Observational design with a cross-sectional study approach. The number of samples is 64 respondents. Sample selection was made by purposive sampling. Data collection was taken by measuring height and weight and using the Denver Developmental Screening Test II. Data is processed using the chi-square statistical test with a significance level of p (α) = 0.05. The analysis results show no correlation between haemoglobin concentration and physical growth and development in children with asignificance value of p> 0.05. It can be concluded that there is no significant relationship between haemoglobin concentration and physical and developmental growth in Infants 2 years - 5 years in Malaka Village, Sumedang. For further research, more respondents and better measurement tools are needed to improve theaccuracy of the research results. Keyword: haemoglobin concentration, physical and developmental growth
