School-age children who do not practice safe food behavior are at risk of experiencing health problems. The aim of the study was to determine the effect of education with mind map methods on safe food behavior in school-age children. The study design was a quasi-experimental with pre- and posttests design, involving 88 school-age children, and each group consisted of 44 respondents who were divided into intervention group and control group. Multistage random sampling was used to determine the research area and school where the research was conducted, while the research subject was selected using simple random sampling. Measuring instruments used questionnaires from previous researchers regarding food safety behavior in school-age children. The results showed that the mind map method significantly affects knowledge (p-value = 0.000), attitude (p-value = 0.000), and skill (p-value = 0.000) for safe food. This study recommends that the mind map method be applied in an effort to improve clean and healthy living behavior in school-age children.
