The increasing of malnutrition prevalence is not just a threat at the present but also a threat for the future. The purposes of this article are to analyze the nutritional status of under-five children and the relation between household food security and caring in poor household. The design of this research was cross sectional study. This research was conducted in Kedung Jaya Village, Tanah Sareal Sub District and Tajur Village, East Bogor Sub District, Bogor City and was conducted during 5 months (April-August 2006). The amount of the samples were 61 poor households with 28 households who had under-five children. The result showed that 63.3 percent households in Kedung Jaya Village and 67.6 percent of households in Tajur Village were food insecurity households. There are 20.0 percent under-five children at Kedung Jaya Village and 18.2% at Tajur Village who had mild malnutrition; and also who had normal of nutrition status but had malnutrition at the past (20.0% at Kedung Jaya Village and 27.3 percent household at Tajur Village). Households that had food insecurity tend to have normal of nutritional status of their under-five children, if they had proper caring. On the contrary, though the households had food security but they had bad caring, their under-five children will tend to have malnutrition.
