Abstract

Stunting is a problem that threatens the quality of human resources in the future. This problem of chronic malnutrition is caused by a lack of nutritional intake and failure to achieve development and growth both physically and cognitively as measured by height for age. This research aims to explain the relationship between family support and the incidence of stunting. Data collection carried out in this literature review used a literature search method from national and international articles using the ScienceDirect, Google Scholar and Pubmed databases. An initial search using the keyword: “Child Stunting Family Support” yielded 9,924 articles from 2018 to 2023 that met the inclusion criteria. Based on the results of the literature review, it was found that family support has a significant relationship with the incidence of stunting because good family support is considered capable of creating an optimal environment so that risk factors for stunting can be minimized. Family support is specifically provided in four ways through emotional, informational, instrumental, and assessment or appreciation support. Stunting prevention can be done through strengthening family support in a complex manner through the implementation of emotional support, information support, instrumental support, and good assessment or appreciation support for the mother. By implementing this family support, health behavior will be created that can provide greater opportunities to fulfill children's needs so that they do not experience stunting.
