The aim of this study was to determine the nutritional knowledge of mothers with children aged between 0-24 months. The research was conducted on randomly selected 1103 voluntary mothers with children aged between 0-24 months in four health care centers in Golbasi{dotless} town center of Ankara city. Research data was obtained through the prepared questionnaire form and face-to-face interview technique. In order to examine the nutritional knowledge of the mothers included in the research, the study tested whether their scores from nutritional knowledge statements dispersed normally. For this purpose Kolmogorov-Smirnov one sample test was used in the study. Accordingly, the test results indicated that the mean scores of nutritional knowledge did not disperse normally (p = 0.000). Therefore, nonparametric tests were used in the analysis of the data instead of parametric tests. In conclusion, mothers' nutritional knowledge was determined to increase in parallel with education level and age (excluding >36). In a general sense, it can be said that mothers included in the study had a good level of nutritional knowledge.
