Abstract
Stunting as a condition of failure to thrive in children under five is an event that has received special attention from the government. The state of stunted babies has measured the height or length of the baby’s body that is less than minus two standard deviations of the child’s median standard of growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of infant upper arm circumference on the incidence of stunting. This study was an observational analytic study using a statistical method approach in the analysis of these effects, specifically case-control design method. The results showed that the upper arm level could affect the incidence of stunting in toddlers. The value of odd ratio evidenced this; it was 9.577. In the future, medical personnel can consider the results of this study in predicting the possibility of early cases of stunting so they can do prevention early.
