The cause of the emergence of nutritional problems in children under five is influenced by many interrelated factors. It is directly influenced by several things, namely the child does not get enough nutritious food at the age of five, the child does not get adequate nutritional care and the child suffers from an infectious disease. One of the causes of malnutrition is that babies do not receive full breast milk until the first 6 months of age. The method used to carry out community service is by collecting data on the number of breastfeeding mothers in Mlajah Bangkalan. The targets of this program are all breastfeeding mothers in Mlajah Bangkalan and one of their closest people (husband or parent).
