Incidence of bronchopneumonia calculated for four months and the results are bronchopneumonia frequency (27 samples; 50%) and not bronchopneumonia (27 samples; 50%). Based on the analysis can be concluded that the nutritional status related to the incidence of bronchopneumonia (p < 0.05). Other variables were measured, namely age, gender and basic immunization status, when analyzed with the Mann Whitney test results obtained Sig = 0.003, α = 0.05, then the Sig < α values​​ (0.003 < 0.025), the results of this research can be used as evaluation by the parents of the respondents to improve the nutritional status of their children under five as not susceptible to infectious diseases, especially bronchopneumonia.
