The prevalence of stunting in infants in Bangka Belitung Province in 2007 was 36% and the Riskesdas 2013 data showed the prevalence of stunting was 30%. However, there was a decrease in the prevalence of stunting, it has not yet reached the national target for nutritional improvement (20%). This study aimed to study the determinant factors of stunting occurred in children aged 0-24 month. This study was an analytical survey with a cross-sectional design.
