Introduction: School-age children have a very high risk of experiencing a nutritional problem during their development, consisting of an imbalance between their body mass index and the state of malnutrition due to their nutritional intake. The parenting at Muhammadiyah Orphanage is related to the nutritional status of the children managed in the group. This parenting status causes less attention to be paid to the children’s nutrition. This study aims to identify the food intake pattern in relation to the food delivery and nutritional status of school-aged children (6-12 years) in the Muhammadiyah Orphanage house setting. Methods: The research design was descriptive and used random cluster sampling. The variable of this study was food intake patterns. The data was collected using demographic statistics and a validated CFQ Questionnaire, after which the data was then analyzed through frequency distribution to get the relevant percentage. Ethical clearance was required in this study. Result: A total of 121 children aged 6-12 years old at Muhammadiyah Orphanage were recruited. The results show that most children were male (51.2 %) with an age range of 5-7 years old (38.8%). The food intake patterns of the sample were inappropriate (78.5 %). Conclusion: This study concludes that there was a high prevalence of inadequate nutritional status among the sampled school-age children. The caregivers, as they are supported by the government and stakeholders, should consider the children’s nutritional intake. This result also suggests that the scope of this study looking into the early detection of nutritional status among school-age children still needs to be improved in relation to various elements. Keywords: Food intake patterns, nutritional status, orphanage, school-age children
