The main purpose of this study was to investigate the factors that influenced the school children’s health behavior. These behaviors included eating behavior, exercise behavior, safety life, eyesight protection, interpersonal relationship, mental health, regular habit, good posture, and daily health practice. Besides, the factors that influenced health behavior were also explored. The sample was selected from the school children who registered in the elementary school in Taiwan in the first semester of 2002. four thousand eight hundred and twenty-six children out of the 5,688 samples completed the self-administered questionnaire. The result showed that: As a whole, the type of behavior that the students performed best was daily health practice. The individual behavior that the students performed better were eating breakfast everyday, washing hands after using the toilet, and taking the bath everyday. The behaviors that the students did not performed well were using dental floss to clean the teeth at least once a day, eating the too salty and greasy food. Female students performed better than their male counterparts except the exercise behavior. The fifth and sixth graders had healthier behavior than the third and fourth graders with the exception of good posture. The aboriginal students had worse behavior than other students. School children with the parents of higher social status usually performed better health behavior. The authors suggested that the sample should be expanded to include parents’ and teachers’ behavior to generate more information. Also, the health education curriculum should take the social status of the family and ethnicity of the students into consideration.
