The research sample was 160 adolescent girls using stratified random sampling technique. Data analysis using univariate analysis and bivariate analysis using chi square test with 95% confidence level. The results of the study using statistical tests with chi-square values ​​obtained on nutritional status with the incidence of anemia were p value = 0.008 <0.05. The results of the analysis of eating patterns with the incidence of anemia are p value = 0.004 < 0.05 with an OR of 0.409.
