Adolescent Nutrition Education and Stunting Prevention

Adolescence is a transition period from children to teenagers. Trends in health problems in adolescents include iron deficiency (anemia), lack of height, chronic lack of energy and obesity. Stunting is a chronic nutritional problem in toddlers characterized by shorter body height compared to children their age. The causes of stunting are multidimensional, one of which is maternal nutrition starting from adolescence. Poor nutrition among young women causes an increase in the incidence of stunting. Knowledge about nutrition in adolescents is very important because it will have a long-term impact on health status. Adolescents' good knowledge about nutrition is correlated with health as seen from their good nutritional status. To equip teenagers with nutritional knowledge and stunting prevention, community service needs to be carried out. The activity aims to increase knowledge and awareness in implementing balanced nutrition for teenagers and preventing stunting at the Lima Menara Foundation Islamic Boarding School. Education is provided using lecture and discussion methods. Pre and post-test evaluations are carried out to determine increases in knowledge. The results obtained were that the majority (70%) had a sufficient increase in knowledge, with an average value of 71.8. This shows that education/counseling can increase the knowledge of participants.
