Background: 24,7% of underfive children in Indonesia were underweight and 6,3% were severly underweight. Protein deficiency is one of the factors of nutritional deficiency. Fish is a good dietary protein source, which is relatively cheap in South Sulawesi. Thus, fish can be used as one of the alternatives to increase the nutritional status of underweight children. “Abon ikan’ is one of the processed food from fish.
Objectives: This study is aimed to reveal the effect of ‘abon ikan’ supplementation on the changes of the nutritional status of underweight children aged 24-59 months.
