Results: Determinants that are risk factors for stunting are history of LBW (OR=7 with 95% CI=1,453-66,087), pregnancy distance (OR=3.7, with 95% CI=1,698-8,178), knowledge about complementary feeding (OR=4.230 with 95% CI=1,841-10,048) and hand washing with soap habits (OR=5.153 with 95% CI=1,707-18,565).
