- Wasting is a condition of the body that is thin and so thin that it exceeds -2 Standard Deviation under the median body weight according to height or length. The objective of this research, therefore, was to analyze the original patterns, macro nutrition and vitamin-A intake with wasting toddlers. The focus on this research was on children in Sukarami Health Center. Observational analytical research with a case control approach was used, along with multi stage cluster sampling, involving a total of 60 toddlers. Data was collected through interviews using questionnaires and form recall. Data processing was performed using computer software. The data was then analyzed using a Chi-square test at 0.05 level of significance. The results showed that there was a significant association between parenting (p=0.025), energy intake (p=0.000), protein intake (p= 0.026), fat (p=0.007), carbohydrate intake (p=0.000) with wasting. There is no significant association between vitamin-A intake with wasting (p=0.424). Therefore, it can be concluded that parenting in macro nutrition intake contributes to the occurrence of wasting in infants.
