This study aimed to analyze the correlation between dietary patterns with nutritional status on 10-12 years old students at Primary School Sumberkembar 03, Binangun. The research design was a cross-sectional study. Samples were 28 respondents chosen by using simple random sampling. The independent variable is the dietary pattern, and the dependent variable is nutritional status. The instruments used are food recall 3x24 hours and Body Mass index.
