BACKGROUND: Stunting is a chronic nutritional problem that occurs worldwide, including in Indonesia. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has increasingly caused stunting to increase in coastal areas in particular. AIM: This study aimed to obtain a stunting prevention model with a Health-Promoting Family model approach in coastal families. METHODS: This study was quantitative research. The population in this study was mothers of toddlers aged 6–48 months in the coastal areas of Pamekasan. The sample in this study was mothers of 135 toddlers in Tlanakan and Talang villages who were selected using a simple random sampling technique. The independent variables are the history of present illness, mother’s knowledge, care patterns, literacy, cultural aspects, and family support—while the dependent variable is family prevention behavior regarding the incidence of stunting. Data collection was carried out by interview method using a questionnaire. Statistical analysis was carried out using the Logistic Regression test (=0.05) RESULTS: The factors that affect stunting prevention are knowledge p = 0.008 (CI: 1.438–11.780), literacy p = 0.000 (CI: 2.136–17.003), cultural aspects p = 0.00 (CI: 0.039–0.366) and family support p = 0.000 (CI: 1.273–20.498). CONCLUSION: Knowledge, family support, literacy, and culture affect stunting prevention in families. It takes the collaboration of the community, the government participation in strengthening maternal and child health programs that support the achievement of stunting prevention in families. There are opportunities to research what appropriate forms of literacy in families support the success of stunting prevention in toddlers for further studies
