Eating more calories than you burn off causes weight gain.
Eating fewer calories than you burn off causes weight loss. It's really that simple. The hard part, which takes a lot more discussion than this forum allows, is gaining or losing weight in a healthy fashion. That can be quite hard, can involve changing habits and changing life styles.

Vitamins don't have but a few calories, so they cannot help a person gain weight (if the person is in normal health already).
The children's gummy vitamins have a few more calories. A person should take a regular once-a-day vitamins plus minerals, just to be sure he is not missing any vitamin. His primary care doctor can discuss whether of not he might need extra vitamin d, etc...
