Abstract

Stunting is a growth problem in children who have a length or height that does not match their age. One way to prevent stunting is to meet nutritional intake in children under five in the form of fulfilling exclusive breastfeeding for children less than 6 months and breast milk and MP-ASI (complementary food for breast milk) for children aged 6 months and over. Community service activities carried out in Sumberejo, Ambulu, Jember are stunting counseling to prevent stunting of childrens physical and cognitive abilities and training related to increasing innovation in the management and presentation of MP-ASI (Complementary Feeding Food for Toddler). The purpose of this service activity is to increase knowledge and skills in making MP-ASI in the form of pumpkin ice cream made from local ingredients and is liked by toddlers. Based on the results of the pre-test and post-test on public knowledge and awareness of stunting, it was shown that there was an increase in knowledge of 23.8%, 71.42% did not experience a change in knowledge, and 4.76% experienced a decrease in knowledge. Therefore, it can be concluded that the people of Sumberejo Village, Ambulu District, Jember Regency already have good knowledge and awareness about stunting yet still the provision already given can contribute to increasing their knowledge.
