No: Multivitamins don't do that in the U.S. But, if a person takes the kids' gummy vitamins, he can chew 4-6 of them each day to add up to an adult dose.

This is not a nutritious way to do things, but is likely the only way any multivitamin can make a person want to eat something else ...Read more
