scanning for vitamin nutrition info

As a newbie I wonder if anyone has thought of adding their daily Vitamin intake as a recipe to be included in one of their meals? I attempted to do so but have had no luck scanning for values on line. I saw that someone posted the question as a suggestion on Jan 7th of ??? IDK year with no answer. I tend to be stubborn as that is how you achieve anything worthwile.

    A lot of the multivitamins are already in the FOOD database, or you can enter it as a new food using your bottle and label to manually enter it.

    Mine are. I am logging them because they are gummies and pack a whopping 50 calories.

    I use two supplements and they were already in the database. I used to just log it under a meal but eventually renamed a meal to "supplements" and they get logged there. Mine don't have much in the way of calories but this just reminds me to take them.

    It is a complete non-issue for me.

    If it's a vitamin I'm tracking, I scan the barcode and include it. For instance, I donate blood on a regular basis, so I keep an eye on my weekly iron average to make sure that I'm ranging near my RDA.
