Objective :This study aimsto analyzetherelationshipbetween macro and micro nutrientsintakeandbreastfeedingduration on stuntingas well asnon-stunting toddlers. Method: Thestudywasconductedusingthequantitativedescriptivemethodwithacase controldesign. Sixty-eight(68)infant were selected after 224 candidates were screened.Stuntingwas measuredonz-score WHZandanalyzedwithWHO Anthro2005 while nutrientintakewasmeasuredbyRecallform1x24 hours,breastfeeding reports were obtained fromquestionnaire. Furthermore, bodyheight(WHZ)wasmeasuredusing microtoise whileBivariateanalysis was carried out usingChisquaretest.Results: The results showedthat thereisa relationshipbetweenstunting and

In addition, there wasalso acorrelationwithcalciump=0.000<α=0.05 CI6.008(2.045- 17.650),zinc=0.000<α=0.05CI8.727 (2,287- 33,303),andexclusivebreastfeedingp=0.000<α=0.05CI9.905 (0.630-37.911). Conclusion:Based on theresults(pvalue 0.000),there isa significant correlation between energy, protein, vit A, Ca, as well as zincintake and stuntingin underfivechildren.
