Stunting has an impact on delayed physical development and low levels of intelligence, increased risk of infection and increased child morbidity and mortality. Three hundred and eighty-seven of the 3168 toddlers in the Silo I subdistrict and 1269 of 4620 toddlers in the Silo II subdistrict were stunted based on EPPGBM data by February 2021. Silo district had the highest prevalence of stunting toddlers in Jember Regency (49%) based on the E-HDW (E-Human Development Worker) report of the Ministry of Villages and PDTT by March 2021. Based on the information from local nutritionist, high number of stunted children in Silo was caused by lack of understanding about food and nutrition. It was mainly due to low level of economic status. Low purchasing power of the family, family eating habit, and covid-19 pandemic altogether may worsen the food and nutrition quality of the children. This study aims to identify the eating behavior of stunted children’s families in Silo district, Jember regency during the covid-19 outbreak period. A total of 28 families who had stunted children were involved in the study. Data were collected by local cadres using online forms. Food frequency questionnaire was used to observe the eating behavior of families which have stunted children, including food sources of carbohydrates, protein, vegetables, and fruit. The results described that the food which were consumed by the family of stunted children were not varied. There was limitation of protein source food choice in Silo.
