The objective of study is to analyze the relationship between the function, knowledge and attitude of families with the nutritional status of stunted children. The design of this study was a cross-sectional. The population was the mothers of children under five with stunting. The sample consisted of 129 respondents selected through purposive sampling. The independent variables were family function, knowledge and attitude, while the dependent was the nutritional status. The data was collected using a questionnaire and analyzed using the Spearman rho with α < 0.05. The results show that there was no relationship between family function with the nutritional status (p = 0.553, r = 0.053), however knowledge (p = 0.004, r = 0.249) and attitude (p = 0.000, r = 0.637) had a relationship with the nutritional status. Family knowledge and attitude determine the nutritional status of stunting children. It is important for nurses to develop education for families to prevent stunting.
