The COVID-19 pandemic has been going on since the end of 2019 until now and many positive residents have been confirmed to be suffering from symptoms of COVID-19. However, there is still little literature discussing nutrition based on community characteristics after the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, this article aims to analyze nutrition of the community after the COVID-19 pandemic. This study was an observational descriptive analytic design of the cross-sectional study. The samples were participants of the community service who were teachers and parents of the kindergarten school. The data were analyzed using T-test and linear regression analysis. The study results indicated that there were significant differences between the pretest score and posttest score with a p-value < 0.001. In addition, all the factors including age, educational level, pretest and posttest score, weight, and height altogether significantly contribute to the nutritional status. Several measures need to be taken to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic including those providing educational services and healthy nutrition and lifestyle to improve the community’s health.
