  Background and Objective: The quality of baby growth at critical times is influenced both by genetic and environmental factors. One environmental factor is the role of the mother, who optimizes the innate potential of a child through care giving and stimulation. This study aimed to identify the effectiveness of mother empowerment in caring for babies of 0-6 months by providing health education with a modeling approach. Materials and Methods: This study used a quasi-experimental pre-post control group design. Statistical analyses were performed with the Wilcoxon test. The intervention was the provision of health education with a modeling approach of lactation management and baby growth stimulation. The sample was 81 people, consisting of 41 in the treatment group and 40 in the control group. Results: The results of this study at month 1 showed no significant difference in body weigh/shoulder length (p = 0.53), body weigh/age (p = 0.33), shoulder length/age (p = 0.98) and LK/U (p = 0.12). At 6 months old, there were significant differences in body weigh/shoulder length (p = 0.02), body weigh/age (p = 0.04) and shoulder length/age (p = 0.03), but there was no significant difference in the LK/U (p = 0.67). The effectiveness of mother empowerment in the care of babies through the provision of health education with a modeling approach showed an increase in baby anthropometric status. Conclusion: It is concluded that increasing mother empowerment through health education improves infant growth.

  Background: Complicated health problems require the involvement of all healthcare professions. Nutritional status is one of the most important aspects in preparing healthy generations. The purpose of this research was to examine interprofessional collaborations in the efforts of handling nutritional problems in toddlers. Method: This qualitative research study was completed in three public health centers in Jeneponto Regency. A total of 22 informants (19 females and 3 males) participated in this study. The professionals consisted of three doctors, seven nurses, five midwives, four nutritionists, two sanitarians and one health promotion officer. Results: The results of this research revealed various definitions of malnutrition by the health officials, including the characteristics and causes of malnutrition. Various actual activities were performed as joint efforts in handling nutrition problems and a good understanding of interprofessional collaborations was indicated by the health officers. Many activities showed a form of interprofessional collaboration in the daily healthcare services. One of these activities was the integrated health center activity. However, at the time of implementation of the activities, there was not yet an interprofessional collaboration as a whole. Supporting documents showed that the implementation of interprofessional collaborations in the form of written rules was also not available. Conclusion: It can be concluded that the implementation of interprofessional collaborations in South Sulawesi has not been optimized.

  Background and Objective: Honey has the ability to improve lipid profiles and influence cholesterol and triglyceride levels in individual with central obesity. Central obesity can be defined as visceral fat accumulation in the upper part of the body. This study was conducted to analyze the effect of the administration of 70 g of honey per day for two months on lipid profiles in patients with central obesity. Materials and Methods: This study had a quasi-experimental design, with a non randomized group with pre- and post tests. The sample population consisted of 25 subjects who received the intervention and 25 control subjects. The intervention group was administered honey and provided obesity education. The control group only received obesity education. The 70 g of honey was administered in 250 mL of water each day for 60 days, while obesity education was provided three times within the study period. Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglyceride levels were assessed in both the intervention and control groups as outcomes. The Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests were used to analyze the data. Results: There were no significant differences between the intervention group and the control group in terms of age, BMI, waist circumference and lipid profile before the intervention (p>0.05). The main effects in the intervention group were reduced levels of total cholesterol (2.25±9.7, p = 0.33) and LDL (1.85±13.2, p = 0.4). The total amount of honey consumed, which was ≥4000 g in the intervention group, showed that total cholesterol (p = 0.00), LDL (p = 0.00) and HDL (p = 0.00) levels differed significantly before and after treatment, with decreases of 6.96±7.26, 8.87±9.79 and 10.9±8.97, respectively. A non-significant difference was found in the triglyceride level of 14.9±27.57 (p = 0.36). Conclusion: The administration of honey produced in Indonesia significantly reduced the levels of total cholesterol, LDL and HDL in individuals with central obesity; the level of triglyceride was not affected.

  Objective: The objective of this study was to identify the risk factors that modify food consumption patterns and physical activity in school-age children to encourage a healthy body mass index. Materials and Methods: The study used a quasi-experimental method with a non-equivalent control design. The intervention was implemented for six months in the form of planned group sessions using a peer group model and leaflets. The progress was also monitored on a monthly basis using questionnaires. A proportional random sampling method was used. The data analyses performed were univariate, bivariate and multivariate analyses with Hotelling’s trace and paired t-test. Results: The results of this study show that there was a change in body mass index (p = 0.000), food consumption pattern (p = 0.000) and physical activity (p = 0.001) in both groups. Conclusion: The implementation of the planned peer group session model contributed to the change in nutritional status, eating behaviour and physical activity of the respondents. The parties involved should cooperate to find ways to prevent obesity in school-age children by changing lifestyle habits such as diet and physical activity.
