Overnutrition needs a serious attention because it deals with a variety of health problem complications in adult, such as diabetes and heart disease. This research aims to analyze the association between the amount of pocket money and breakfast habit with overnutrition status in elementary school children. Analytical observational research with cross sectional design was conducted in SDN Ploso I-172 Tambaksari Surabaya. The sample size was 52, which was taken by using simple random sampling technique in 4th and 5th grade students. Association among variables were analyzed using Chi-Square test. The result showed that 32.7% of respondents skip breakfast. The mean of respondent’s pocket money was IDR 5.894,23 ± 3.215,06. Majority of respondents were obese (34.6%) and overweight (28.8%). Chi-Square test showed there was an association between the amount of pocket money (p=0.000) and breakfast habits (p=0.005) with overnutrition status. It can be concluded that the amount of pocket money and breakfast skipping habit contribute to overnutrition status in elementary school children.
