stunting. Stunting is a condition of toddlers who have short body size and are not suitable for age caused by malnutrition from both mother and child. The purpose of this study was to determine the implementation of stunting prevention programs during the COVID-19 pandemic at the work area of the Banjar Health Center, Pandeglang
Regency in 2021. The study used in this study was a survey descriptive study with a cross sectional approach. The sample in this study was 100 respondents using SPSS
with a frequency distribution table using univariate analysis. the results showed that 72% pregnant women get the counselling class during pregnancy, 93% pregnant
women received supplementary food (PMT), 81% pregnant women consumed moringa leaves. Prevention of stunting during the Covid-19 pandemic greatly affects the program activities carried out by the Banjar Health Center. It is hoped that this research can provide information, especially to pregnant women and the public, about the importance of preventing stunting since pregnancy.
