The health development goals as stated in the National Health System are efforts to implement health carried out by the Indonesian people in order to obtain the ability to live a healthy life for each community in order to realize a high health degree. The better the nutritional status of children, especially under-five children, the better the immune system so that the children are not susceptible to infectious diseases such as ARI. In fact, there are bout 100 million people of Indonesia who are declared malnourished. This study aims to determine whether there is a relationship between nutritional status and the incidence of ARI among under-five children (13 - 59 months) at Lelea CHC Unit. The study type used was descriptive correlational (correlational study). Correlational descriptive study (correlational study) is a research/study on the relationship between two variables in a situation or using Cross Sectional approach, namely the collection of data regarding the independent variable (nutritional status) and the dependent variable (ARI disease) as study objects, the data are observed, examined and measured in the same time or in a certain period. From the results of data processing using the Chi-Square test it was obtained a lower P-count (0.01) which meant that there was a significant relationship between nutritional status and the incidence of ARI among under-five children (13 - 59 months) in the work area. Based on the results of this study, it can be concluded that there was a relationship between nutritional status and the incidence of ARI among under-five children (13 - 59 months). It is recommended that patients with ARI should improve their nutritional status, so that they are not easily infected by ARI. The assessment of nutritional status is performed regularly using height measurement and weight check in each month.
