Abstract

Developing countries, including Indonesia, are still faced with wasted prevalence among under-five children. The studies aim to examine food intake and infectious diseases as the determinant of wasted prevalence among children. The cross-sectional study was undertaken among under-five children in two selected health center area in Padang city. Data was collected through the standardized questionnaires. There is 10.0% of children with wasted nutritional status. The result showed that carbohydrate intake and diarrhea disease are both the dominant factors that have an association with wasted status among children under five years (p-value=0.015; POR=5.713; 95%CI=1.395-23.403). We suggest mother give children healthy food which balances nutrient regarding their needs, especially carbohydrate rich-foods as the main source of energy and create a healthy environment to decrease infectious diseases risk for the optimal growth and development.
