In brief: Yes
Everyone needs vitamins a and c, as well as a whole host of b vitamins, d, e, k, and many other nutrients and minerals.
If you are asking if children need to be given extra a and c, then the answer depends on the quality of the diet. The better and more varied the diet, the less likely a child will need to be given vitamins. Except d, which is hard to get from food. Supplement with d.
