It is caused by the unproper feeding pattern given by their mother. Transcultural nursing theory focuses on factors affecting the culture associated with feeding pattern. The purpose of this study is to analyze factors associated with feeding patterns in undernutrition and malnutrition referring to transcultural nursing theory.

The variables in this study were the education, economic, cultural value and lifestyle, social and family support, technology, and feeding pattern. The data were collected by questionnaires and structured interview then it was tested by using the Spearman rho rank test with = 0.05. The results showed that there was a relationship between feeding pattern with the economy (p= 0.000; r = 0.727), cultural value and lifestyle (p= 0.001; r = 0.548), and technology (p= 0.006; r = 0.466). However, there was no relationship between feeding pattern and knowledge (p= 0.551), social support and family (p= 0.071). In conclusion, the economic, social and cultural value, and technological factors affected feeding pattern.
