AIM: The purpose of this study was to analyze the determinants of stunting prevention in relation to mothers with children aged 6–24 months in Madura Indonesia. METHODS: The design of this study was cross-sectional. The number of samples totaled 109 respondents using a purposive sampling technique. The independent variables were knowledge, attitudes, income, cultural values, and parenting. The dependent variable was stunting prevention. The data were collected using a questionnaire and then analyzed using the Chi-square test with a significance level of α < 0.05. RESULTS: The factors associated with stunting prevention were knowledge (p = 0.007), attitude (p = 0.034), income (p = 0.006), cultural values (p = 0.016), and parenting patterns (p = 0.000). CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge, attitude, income, cultural values, and parenting influenced the parent’s strategy when it came to prevent stunting in their children. Stunting prevention programs should focus on improving parental behavior by modifying these factors.
