Abstract

Overweight and obesity in children are still a global problem. The problem of overweight and obesity in under-five children can have a bad impact on growth and development. Nutritional problems in children are influenced by mothers’ feeding behavior. This study aims to analyze the factors that influence the behavior of mothers in fulfilling nutrition for under-five children with overweight and obesity. The design used was a cross-sectional approach. The population was mothers who have under-five children with overweight and obesity. The sample was determined using purposive sampling and found 40 respondents. The independent variables in this study were previous behavior, perceived benefits, perceived barriers, self-confidence, attitudes and commitment, while the dependent variable was the behavior of mothers in fulfilling the nutrition of under-five children. The data were collected by using questionnaire and analyzed by using Spearman’s Rho. The results of this study indicate that the behavior of fulfilling the nutritional needs of overweight and obesity children was influenced by the perceived benefits (r = 0.701, p = 0.000), perceived barriers (r=0.488, p=0.001), attitudes (r=0.640, p=0.000) and commitment (r=0.637, p=0.000). Further research is recommended to provide effective health education to prevent overweight and obesity in under-five children. Keywords: maternal, midwife, nurse, referral hospital
