This type of research is an analytical survey using a cross sectional approach. The population in the study were all mothers who have children aged 24-59 months. The sample was chosen by purposive sampling method. Bivariate analysis using correlation Pearson and Rank Spearman test. Multivariate analysis using Linear Regression Test with Dummy Variable. The results of bivariate analysis showed that there was a correlation between food availability with EER, EPR and HAZ (p <0.05), food access with EPR, and HAZ (p <0, 05), food utilization with EER, EPR and HAZ (p <0.05), food diversity with EPR (p <0.05), EER and EPR with HAZ. The results of multivariate analysis showed that food availability was the variable that was most related to the HAZ (smallest significant). It was suggested that the community can utilize existing resources to fulfill family needs and increasing socio-economic conditions, so that family food security can be completely.
