Lampung is one of eight provinces in Indonesia that has experienced an increase for three consecutive years in the prevalence of stunting in under five years children, which in 2017 reached 31.6%. In 2018 this figure may drop slightly to 27.5%, but this is still quite high. Some cities and districts have a much higher figure, including Bandar Lampung as the provincial capital, which reaches 33.4%. This study aims to determine the determinants of stunting in children under five in Bandar Lampung, by a survey method that takes a sample of 124 children under five who are registered in Posyandu in three topographic regions. The three regions are lowland, urban and highland. The research data was collected in September-October 2019, including anthropometric data and nutritional intake of children under five as well as the socio-economic characteristics of their families. The results showed that the prevalence of stunting was 43.5%, much higher than the provincial average. The data analysis showed that stunting was not only caused by a lack of nutritional intake, but significantly stunting was also influenced by the mother's educational and social status, namely the mother's occupation before marriage and the mother's employment status during pregnancy.
