Abstract

The problem of infants’ nutrition in Indonesia led this research to find out such as complementary feeding. This paper reports the used of ripe awak bananas, which has been since long time ago used as the baby food, and i’s worth developed into complementary feeding. With a quasy- experimental non-equivalent control group design, i.e. giving the complementary feeding for three months, using samples of 75 infants of age 6 to 9 months, whom were divided into three groups. The each group was given complementary feeding: ripe awak bananas flour, a mixture ripe awak bananas flour and soy sprouts, and the complementary feeding family (control). The results showed that the average increase in length of infants who were given complementary feeding with a mixture ripe awak bananas flour and soy sprouts was higher than those of control groups. Additionally, the average increase in length of infants who were given the mixed ripe awak bananas and soy sprouts was highest among the other groups. It is concluded that the complementary feeding mixed of ripe awak bananas flour and soy sprouts can be used as an alternative to prevention of infants’ stunting of under-five. The provision of complementary feeding interventions are formulated using ripe awak bananas flour and flour of soy sprouts have influence on the increase in length of infants This study has a significant contribution to help the stunted children in their growth.
