Abstract

Culture, social, personality, psychology, and religion are the main factors in choosing food for an individual. However, unfortunately for religion and health factor still does not become the reason for selecting the food for most of muslim students at elementary school (SD). This research was conducted to analyze the pattern of healthy and halal food consumption by muslim students at elementary school by using mixed method with embedded design. The results show a poor condition. About 57% students have tendency to choose unhealthy food. For the reason of choice, the effect of culture 54%, personality reason 48%, and social-economy reason 71%. Meanwhile, 59% food that they consume are doubtful whether it is halal or not. Halal label does not have significant effect towards the choice of food for muslim students of elementary school in Pekanbaru. Therefore, the education on halal food for muslim students at elementary school is pivotal. The family, students, teachers, and school members must pay attention on this case and avoid the damage on individuals of the future generation.
