Anemia is associated with mortality and morbidity in adolescents. The prevalence of anemia increases with increasing age. World Health Organization (WHO) data in the Worldwide Prevalence of Anemia shows that there are 1.62 billion people with anemia in the world with the highest prevalence in pre-school age 47.4% and Women of Reproductive Age (WUS) 41.8%. With sufficient knowledge of nutrition, young women will understand the impact of the wrong nutritional behavior that has been applied so far so that efforts to prevent anemia grow if it is marked by changes in knowledge as well as attitudes. This community service activity aims to increase the knowledge of adolescents in preventing anemia. The purpose of counseling for adolescents is so that participants can understand what anemia is, the causes of anemia, prevention of anemia, and examples of food sources of iron.
