Food consumption pattern is known as a determinant factor for nutritional problem among children. The aim of the research was to asses the influence of Taburia on the increase of hemoglobin (Hb) and serum ferritin levels for 6-24-month old children in Jeneponto Regency. This research was a quasi experimental study through pre-test and post-test design. The samples were 6-24-month-old children consists of 92 children selected by systematic random sampling method. The dose of Taburia is one sachet in every two days for 120 days. The research variables were Hb level, Hb status, ferritin level, ferritin status, macro and micro nutrien intake, and obedience level. Hb and ferritin levels were measured by Elisa method. The difference of Hb level pre and post was analyzed by paired t test, the proportion of anemia status pre and post by McNemar test, and the obedience level was measured by independent T-test. The results of the research showed the mean initial Hb level was 10.88 ± 1.17mg/dl became 11:24 ±1:07 mg/dl. The results of paired t test indicated there was a significant difference of initial Hb level compared to the end Hb level (p = 0.000). There was no significant difference of mean initial ferritin level which is 27.60±26.04 mg/dl become 30.43±23.10 mg/dl (p=0.331). We conclude that anemia prevalence of 6-24-month old children decreased after intervention of Taburia, thatthe obediency of child who get anemia in consumpting Taburia was in cutting of point 60%. It is suggested in order to Taburia can be one of program to prevent anemia on children.Keywords : taburia, hb, ferritin, 6-24- month-old children
