- The health sector, with various problems, namely stunting, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, and others, is still a priority that continues to be improved in Indonesia. The rate of stunting or failure to thrive in Indonesia is at 30.8%, which is above the WHO recommendation (20%). In 2017, around 29.6% of toddlers in Indonesia belonged in short and very short categories. This number was included in the high category when compared to the neighboring countries such as Myanmar and Thailand. Stunting is usually generated due to malnutrition, lack of parental knowledge, care and nurture, and so on. Stunting does not only occur in rural areas but also occurs in urban areas, i.e., DKI Jakarta. East Jakarta is the second-highest (25.7%) location where stunting occurred. Since this activity was conducted in Duren Sawit Subdistrict, where numerous people still received Healthy Jakarta Cards, special efforts were needed to reduce the high stunting rate. Efforts were made in the form of Health and Nutrition Training with several stages such as giving material and question and answer session, FGD for designing a healthy menu for early childhood, and the practice of making them. The training was given to ± 35 ECE tutors and parents of students from various ECE in Duren Sawit Subdistrict. Tutors and parents seemed enthusiastic and active during the activities, especially when they were given the task to create a one-week healthy menu in groups and then closed with a demo of making a cake with purple sweet potato as ingredients.
