This study was carried out at a Public health center in Pekanbaru from January to December 2020. An observation sheet was used to collect data on Haemoglobin, upper arm circumference (UAC), and body weight. Data normality tests with Shapiro-Wilk and T-Independent tests were performed. The findings revealed that there was no significant difference in body weight and Hb between the provision of additional food in the form of nuggets made from local food and form biscuits; On the UAC of pregnant women, there is a significant difference between providing additional food in the form of nuggets made from local food and providing additional food (AF) in the form of biscuits.
