DKI Jakarta and Java are the highest cases of growth and health problems in children under five, with 143.26 million people out of 262 million. Objective: this study aims to measure maternal knowledge regarding child health applications. Method: This type of research uses descriptive research, with research population of mothers who live in the Posyandu Region of Segarajaya Village, Bekasi Regency. The sampling used is the Non-Probability method with the Purposive Sampling technique. Results: Obtained analysis results from a sample of 124 respondents, found the age of mothers under five with an average age of 30.65 years, secondary education level of 72 respondents (58.1%), not working as many as 101 respondents (81.5% ), and have very good knowledge about child health applications as many as 92 respondents (74.2%). Conclusion: The level of knowledge about Child Health Applications in the most research respondents falls into the excellent category.
