- Child growth is recognized as an important indicator of nutritional and health status. But in fact, there are still some cases of undernutrition in some areas of Jember. This is certainly a challenge for health providers because the lack of nutrients that occur in this golden period is irreversible. This research aims to analyze the effects of modisco with moringa leaf for improving the childhood’s nutritional status. It was a quantitative research and conducted by using quasi-experimental study. This research used pre-post tests design for experiment and control groups. Data from 40 children (20 from modisco group and 20 from the control group) were analyzed by using paired t-test and simple logistic regression. After one week of treatment, the mean of child weight significantly increased in intervention groups (mean gain weight 0.57 kilogram, p = 0.000), whereas the weight score remained unchanged in the control group (mean gain weight 0.05 kilogram, p = 0.066). The result also showed that there was a significant positive effect of the modisco with moringa leaf for increasing child’s body weight (p= 0.026, Exp.B=56,6). It was indicated that the children who were given modisco with moringa leaf for 7 days, potentially had 56,6 times greater for increasing their weight than those who were not given. It could be conduded that the consumption of Modisco with moringa leaf had a beneficial effect to improve the childhood’s nutritional status
