This study was aimed to determine the relationship between exclusive breastfeeding practice and taburia supplementation in children aged 24-60 months in the working area of Sidotopo Wetan Health Center, Surabaya City.

The samples size was 141 children aged 24–60 month, and the statistical analysis employed was the chi-square test. The results showed that the stunting proportion was 54.60%. There was a relationship between exclusive breastfeeding practice and the stunting incidence (p = 0.047). Children who did not provide exclusive breastfeeding had a higher risk 1.97 times of stunting. Taburia supplementation also had a signifi cant relationship with stunting incidence (p = 0.016).
