A total of 42 children studied purposively. Data were collected by direct interview using questionnaires and 2x24 hour recall method. Nutrition contribution of meal box to RDA were 14% of energy, 21% of protein, 17% of vitamin A, 9% of vitamin C, 22% of iron (Fe), and 21% of calcium (Ca). Nutrition contribution of snack to RDA were 13% of energy, 8% of protein, 2% of vitamin C, 9% of iron (Fe), and 10% of calcium (Ca). There were no significant corelation between maternal nutrition knowledge in behavior terms of providing meal box or snack and nutritional knowledge with attitude (p>0.05). There were significant corelation between behavior terms of providing meal box or snack with attitude (p<0.05),and significant corelation between the level of adequacy of energy and protein with nutrition status (p<0.05).
