Multi vitamins

Hi

I would like to know-my baby is 17 months and weighs 18kg.
My question is, if i give her multi vitamins is she not going to have more appetite and gain more weight and which multi vitamins can i give her...?

The average weight for a little girl of 17 months is 10kg. You can see that your daughter's weight is far above the average for her age, so she certainly does not need anything to improve her appetite such as vitamins.
