Abstract

One of the intervention programs to improve the nutrition of pregnant women is supplementary feeding (PMT). The nutritional problem of pregnant women that is often found in the community is the lack of intake of macronutrients and micronutrients. The method used in this study was a sequential mixed method with a sequential explanatory design. The results of this study were the percentage of consumption of MT biscuits by 5 pregnant women with KEK who consumed ≥ 80%. The perception of pregnant women about the severity of chronic energy deficiency (CED) health problems with an arm circumference of less than 23.5 cm is not a health problem that is dangerous for pregnant women. Understanding of PMT biscuit consumption instructions from officers is still lacking. There is no social support in the implementation of PMT for pregnant women from KEK. The availability of PMT for pregnant women from KEK has not been fulfilled in accordance with applicable regulations.

Keywords: Supplemental feeding, chronic energy deficiency, nutrition.
