Abstract
This study aims to analyze the practice of complementary feeding and the factors that influence it in two provinces in Indonesia, such as Banten Province and West Java Province. The research design was cross-sectional using secondary data from the 2017 Indonesian National Socio-Economic Survey. The sample of this study was households with children under two years of age who received complementary foods with a total sample of 154 households. The analysis in this study used univariate, bivariate and multivariate analysis. Multivariate analysis was used to see the factors that influence complementary feeding practices, using binary logistic regression. The finding of this study are the practice of giving complementary feeding in the two provinces shows different practices. In Banten Province, the proportion of offering mineral water, cereals and meat/fish/chicken is greater than that of West Java. In fact, West Java Province reported that it offered more nuts, milk/cheese, eggs, vegetables and fruits than Banten Province. Two factors that influence the practice of offering complementary foods are the community with OR = 0.14.395 (95% CI = 2.191-94.598) and the education of the head of the household with OR = 8,024 (95% CI = 1,134-56,784). The practice of offering complementary foods that are complete and varied according to the infants needs can help promote growth and development. Therefore, food sources for complementary foods must be accessible to all people.
