ABSTRACT Background: One part of improving the degree of health that is the responsibility of the government is through efforts to improve nutrition. Poor nutritional status is the impact of multisectoral problems, one of which is poor family food security. Adequate food security is needed as an effort to fulfill nutrition in order to improve nutritional status for the age group of toddlers and pregnant women. Seeing the high nutritional status of toddlers, especially in Kupang Regency, research will be conducted on the relationship between family food access and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang Regency. Objective: Analyze the relationship between family food access and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang Regency. Method: This study is an observational analytical study with a cross sectional approach and uses secondary data obtained from Yayasan Jaringan Peduli Masyarakat (JPM) Kupang. From this data, a total of 40 toddlers were obtained as research subjects spread across four research locations, namely Tesabela Village (n = 8), Lifuleo Village (n = 5), Sumlili Village (n = 10), and Bolok Village (n = 17). Anthropometric measurements are carried out by health workers and determine the type of nutritional status based on three measurement indices, namely Weight according to Age (BB / U), Height or Length according to Age (TB / U or PB / U), and Weight according to Height or Length (BB / TB or BB / PB). The study respondents were parents of toddlers of the study subjects. Data analysis was carried out non-parametric tests with Spearman's Rho correlation analysis to determine the relationship between family food access as a dependent variable and nutritional status in toddlers as an independent variable. Results: There was a significant relationship between family food access and nutritional status of stunted toddlers only in the measurement of the Weight According to Age index (p value = 0.016); in the other two indices there was no .......
ABSTRACT Gebang starch traditionally has been used by Timorese for making local food. However, it is used to told in mass media that people eat feed because rice has become the most prestigious staple food. Therefore, a study has been conducted to know the physicochemical and organoleptic properties of artificial rice made from gebang starch (GS) in combination with mung bean flour (MB). Five combinations of the flours studied were 100% of GS, 95% of GS with 5% of MB, 90% of GS with 10% of MB, 85% of GS 15% of MB, and 80% of GS with 20% of MB. The rice was processed using an extruder. Proximate, physical, and organoleptic of the rice were then evaluated. The nutrient content of all artificial rice is almost similar to natural rice. Mung bean flour supplementation increased the protein content of the rice. Most of the artificial rice has a yellowish-brown to fallow-brown color. The artificial rice dimension is almost similar to natural rice, which is the length is almost 7 mm, and thickness is almost 3 mm. The artificial rice weight of 1000 kernels ranges from 0.45 to 0.49 g/ml. Except for the aroma of the rice, all other organoleptic properties have a positive response from panelists.It can be concluded that artificial rice made from GS and MB has a good potency to be used as a natural rice complement, especially in terms of the nutritional content.
ABSTRACT Background: Stunting is a chronic malnutrition problem caused by an imbalance of nutritional needs and nutritional intake over a long period of time, one of which is influenced by nutritional parenting from caregivers to toddlers. Nutritional parenting practices in NTT are still a problem. Aim: To find out whether there is a relationship between nutritional parenting patterns and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang Regency. Method: This study uses secondary data with analytic research type with cross sectional approach. Sampling using total sampling technique and obtained 70 toddlers as subjects. This study was analyzed univariately and bivariately using the Chi square test. The intervention program of the Community Care Network Foundation and Danone Institute is education to the community and procurement of public clean water taps. Results: There is no significant correlation between Complementary Foods nutritional parenting patterns and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers at WAZ with a p value = 0.694, WLZ or WHZ with a p value = 0.623, BAZ with a p value = 0.663. There is no significant correlation between first aid nutritional care for toddlers with diarrhea and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers at WAZ with a value of p = 0.155, WLZ or WHZ with a value of p = 0.679, BAZ with a value of p = 0,917. Conclusion: There is no relationship between nutritional parenting patterns and the nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang district.
ABSTRACT Background: Consumption of a diverse diet and having an improved source of clean water are important factors that can help prevent stunting. Most toddlers both in Indonesia and in East Nusa Tenggara Province have a lack of dietary diversity and consumed clean water from unimproved sources. These conditions affect the nutritional status of toddlers and can have a long impact if not immediately treated. Aim: To analyze the correlation between dietary diversity and source of clean water consumed with nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang Regency. Methods: This research uses secondary data were collected by Community Care Network Foundation and Danone Institute which came from Tesabela, Bolok, Lifuleo and Sumlili Village. This research used a cross sectional study with a restrospective approach. Total research data was 70 data obtained with a total sampling technique used the inclusion criteria, data stunted toddlers aged 12-59 months and data stunted toddlers from Community Care Network Foundation and Danone Institute that are complete according to the researcher's needs and the exclusion criteria, incomplete data Community Care Network Foundation and Danone Institute. Data dietary diversity and clean water sources consumed by subjects were analyzed using rho spearman test. Results: There is a significant correlation between dietary diversity and source of clean water consumed with nutritional status of stunted toddlers as indicated by a significance value of p < 0.001 with a positive or unidirectional correlation. Conclusion: There is a significant correlation between dietary diversity and source of clean water consumed with nutritional status of stunted toddlers in Kupang Regency.

ABSTRACT There are four fat soluble vitamins & two water soluble vitamins. The fat soluble vitamins are A, D, E & K. The water soluble ones are B & C. The current article discusses the fat soluble vitamin D & its relation to homoeopathic therapeutics. Among the AYUSH ministry of the Government of India, Homoeopathy is ‘H’ in the AYUSH acronym. In homoeopathic therapeutics, oils are a source of medicine. There are many medicines in homoeopathy that are prepared from oils. The sunshine vitamin medicines are such medicine prepared from oils. The role of these medicines is seen in the light of the role of the vitamin D in the body. The benefits of homoeopathy through its qualities of cost effectiveness, clinical effectiveness & zero side effects can be used for mass coverage. Similarly, masses can benefit through large scale roll out of the medicine prepared from the oil which is the source of vitamin D. The dual benefit of this homoeopathic medicine is that it can be used as a supplement & medicine as well. Therefore, this medicine can be a tool in the vitamin A prophylaxis program, as a supplement in the nutritional programs & finally in bone health through its role in calcium & phosphorus metabolism in the body.
ABSTRACT Gebang (Corypha utan Lamk.) has been using by Timorese people as one of the food buffers crops, especially during the food shortage period due to drought and other extreme conditions. Gebang tree is one of food buffering resource for people in Timor Island. One mature tree can result 281 kg dry starch or about 280 liters sap because both utilizations will cause the death to the tree. The sugar content in the sap is enough to be used to form sugar palm. The starch from gebang is almost similar with that resulted from sagu tree, with proportion of amylose and amylopectin are 24.44% and 75.56%, and temperature of gelatinization of 80.55oC.
ABSTRACT Food is made up of complex and multidimensional elements whose implementation requires significant measurement tools. The overall objective of this work is to assess food consumption within sedentary and pastoral households. This is a cross-sectional study. The methodology used is a food survey of 845 households. The result of this study is that the food groups most stocked by both urban and rural households are cereals (urban 95.7%, rural 79% and pastoral 94.4%) followed by spices/condiments (urban 74.3%, rural 67.5% and 74.4%). The least stocked food groups in urban areas are fruits and vegetables, while the availability of meats in stored speculation is almost non-existent in rural and pastoral areas. The average household food consumption score is 68.10±21.04; 43.29±13.27 and 44.96±13.77 respectively in urban, rural and pastoral areas. We also note a lack of diversity in the diet of rural and pastoral households. Indeed, the average household dietary diversity score is 6.84±1.91; 5.53±1.49 and 5.13±1.29 respectively in urban, rural and pastoral areas. Dietary diversity as well as the average consumption score are associated with household living conditions. In short, the assessment of consumption is an important element in characterizing the household diet.
