Introduction: Providing additional food other than breast milk before 2-year-old babies in Kupang City are babies given "regal" biscuits, "milcuit" biscuits, and "banana" s because the baby does not feel hungry. Providing "regal" biscuits, "milna" and "banana" biscuits as a complement to give breastfeeding before the age of 2 years because parents believe these biscuits can eliminate hunger for the baby. The purpose of this study was to explain the effect of Transcultural Nursing-based health education on knowledge, attitudes, actions of mothers, and family support in breastfeeding.
