Hi,Welcome to hcm.
Your son is just 4 and 1/2 y do you want to give multivitamins in artificial form.You can give something natural instead like fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables.You can also give pediasure with milk which also contains vitamins and minerals.If he has mil cough then just give him hot water to drink if it is increasing then better consult a paediatrician.
Take care.
