Anemia can directly result from inadequate intake of nutrients that play a role in hemoglobin formation, namely protein and iron, due to imbalanced daily food consumption behavior. The preliminary study revealed that out of 35 female students at MAN 2 Samarinda, 20 students (57.14%) were anemia. Limited knowledge of nutrition and health among adolescents leads to inappropriate eating habits. Efforts to enhance knowledge about nutrition and health among adolescents include providing health education using engaging media, such as flip charts. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of nutrition education using flip chart media on protein and iron intake, as well as hemoglobin levels, among adolescent girls with anemia at MAN 2 Samarinda. The research adopts a quasi-experimental design with a one-group pretest and post-test design, involving 13 adolescent girls with anemia selected through purposive sampling. Data collection is conducted through interviews using 2 x 24-hour food recall for protein and iron intake, as well as hemoglobin level measurements for hemoglobin assessment. Data analysis employs paired sample t-test to determine the effectiveness of the education intervention. The results indicate that the flip chart media is effective in improving protein intake (p value = 0.013), iron intake (p value = 0.001), and hemoglobin levels (p value = 0.000) among adolescent girls at MAN 2 Samarinda.
