The idea of taking vitamins with food is two fold. One, because many vitamins are also acids and could upset your stomach, food buffers that acid. Two, because it is always best to spread out your vitamin absorption throughout the day and food slows absorption. So a single cracker really isn't doing either of those is it? I would say a sandwich or several crackers and cheese, or something equivalent to that would be the minimum.
