Children constitute the largest proportion of the population in Indonesia at 33.9% (82.6 million). Research in Indonesia shows that 20-30% of children under five experience growth disorders. The target of achieving the MDGs in 2015 has not been achieved, so hard work is needed to achieve this target. Community empowerment needs to be done so that these targets can be achieved. Health cadres are partners who are closer to the community.

Based on the results of the activities it can be concluded that the community has good enthusiasm so that the community service activities can run smoothly.
