Other non-food rewards can include outings to the beach, inexpensive gifts such as baseball cards or hair clips, or special privileges such as extra telephone time. * Choose healthy snacks. Offer raw vegetables and fruit instead of chips or sweets. Children should have at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day. * Limit portion sizes.

In particular, the academy cited folic acid for women of child-bearing age--to reduce the risk of serious birth defects--and vitamin B12 for older Americans in their fight against anemia.
