There are several risk factors that can cause pneumonia, one of the factor is nutritional status. The Aim of this study was to find out the comparison of nutritional status of children with pneumonia and toddlers without pneumonia toddlers 1-5 years at Health center Garuda Bandung. Collecting secondary data, taken from health center of the medical record data, to see whether the patient has acute or chronic pneumonia. Primary data collection is carried out by doing anthropometric measurements consists of toddler age and weight by using standing body scales for children who can walk and sleeping scales for toddlers who have not been able to walk that have been calibrated. The instrument used to assess the nutritional status of children is a standard deviation (Z-score) with reference to the World Health Organization-National Center Health Statistic (WHO-NCHS), with categories of poor nutritional status, malnutrition, good nutrition, or over nutrition. Toddlers with malnutrition were 8 people consisting of 5 (7.8%) pneumonia and 3 (3.9%) not pneumonia. Toddlers with good nutritional status and more than 68 people consisted of 33 (42.1%) pneumonia and 35 (46%) not pneumonia, with p = 0.711. The nutritional status of children does not affect the incidence of pneumonia, there are other risk factors, namely smoking habits in the family.
