It assesses the effectiveness of doing a school-feeding program in increasing school enrollment in the area of Cilincing. This paper attempts to answer the question of: What are the factors affecting nutrition of student in Sekolah Bambu, Cilincing and how is nutrition affecting educational attainment. In the investigation of this question, both qualitative and quantitative data were collected from primary resources. The quantitative data is gained from measuring BMI of 100 random kids, both boys and girls, between the ages of 7 years old to 12 years old. Qualitative data is also obtained through in depth interviews with 10 random families. Both qualitative and quantitative data is gathered from the area around Sekolah Bambu, Cilincing. This paper arrives at the conclusion that the biggest factor that holds children in Cilincing back from getting sufficient nutrition is essentially because of lack of women empowerment, which could eventually affects educational attainment. Lack of nutrition to an extent does play a role in educational attainment. However, it does not play a big role in determining the number of children that go to school (quantity). It plays a much bigger role in the quality of how students are performing in school, as consuming sufficient nutrients leads to better concentration and cognition. In order to resolve the lack of education for future generations in Cilincing, we must then go to the root of the problem, which is essentially women empowerment.
