Abstract


Background: Complementary breastfeeding program is a
program implemented at health centers which is meant to
improve nutrition status of the community and this is a duty of
nutrition staff at health centers. The prevalence of cases of
complementary breastfeeding side effects may be due to
inappropriate storage and supply as performance of nutrition
staff of health centers.
Objective: To identify the relationship between the
performance of nutrition staff of health centers with the
effectiveness of complementary breastfeeding program among
children less than two years from poor families with poor
nutrition.
Method: The study was observational with cohort design,

poor nutrition who got complementary breastfeeding.

center and 15 malnourished children under two. Data analysis

less than two years did not improve nutrition status from
malnourished to good nutrition status. The performance of

complementary breastfeeding was low in the specification of
target age, the amount of complementary breastfeeding portion
and in the preparation of complementary breastfeeding. The
distribution of complementary breastfeeding at the health office

breastfeeding distribution and management guidelines, such

breastfeeding preparation information, and monitoring of
complementary breastfeeding distribution.
