Stunting cases in Indonesia are in a fairly serious condition, reviewing survey data that states one in three Indonesian children suffer from stunting. Minister of Health Terawan Agus Putranto revealed, the number of stunting cases in Indonesia as of 2019 reached 27.67%.
In this case, it is a concern, considering that the figure is higher than the maximum tolerance of stunting set by the World Health Organization or WHO. Because WHO sets the stunting severity index is called critical if the number is more or equal to 15 %.
Therefore, it is important to know the symptoms of stunting to maintain the nutrition and healthy development of each child.
Some Things How to Detect Stunting
Please note that not all short-term toddlers experience stunting. If the child has a short stature but the increase in body length is consistent, healthy, and developed according to his age, then it can not be said stunting.
For more details on how to detect early child stunting, let’s see the review below.
- Measurement of Children’s Height Periodically and Consistently
By monitoring and measuring the child’s height periodically, it can identify stunting and can be diagnosed and treated appropriately.
- Monitoring Children’s Growth and Development
Development can be monitored by referring to the table of baby and child development that can be obtained easily on various websites or health books. It can also be monitored periodically during immunization once a month.
- Pay attention to Performance in Focusing And Learning Memory
The short-term impact of stunting is impaired brain development and intelligence in children, resulting in poor focus and learning memory.
- Monitor children’s immune and health
Usually, for children who suffer from stunting one of the detection is the condition of children who are prone to various infectious diseases. But for more obvious problems can directly consult a doctor.
As for knowing if the child’s height is normal or not, you should regularly check it to the nearest health service.
