food loss and waste, economic loss, nutrition loss, household


Background: households are one of the biggest contributors to food waste in DKI Jakarta. This is caused by household food loss and waste (FLW) behavior and the impact of this behavior is economic loss and nutritional loss in vain. Objective: To analyze the correlation between FLW behavior and household economic and nutrition loss during the Covid-19 pandemic in West Jakarta. Methods: This study is a quantitative study with a cross-sectional design involving 100 households in the Kebon Jeruk area, West Jakarta. The analysis in this study uses the Spearman Rank correlation. Data were collected by interview technique using FLW behavior questionnaire and food waste questionnaire form filled out by respondents for 4x24 hours. The value of this economic loss will be analyzed using the market price listed on and the value of nutrition loss will be analyzed using nutrisurvey2007. The results: there is a relationship between FLW behavior on economic loss (p = 0.02; p <0.05) but there is no relationship between FLW behavior on nutrition loss, namely energy loss (p = 0.15; p> 0.05), protein loss (p=0,20;p>0,05), fat loss (p=0,33;p>0,05) and carbohydrate loss (p=0,12;p>0,05). Households are expected to change their FLW behavior in order to minimize economic losses and optimally utilize nutrition.
