Landa Gaddy, of Youth Self-Improvement Inc., and a representative of Scalar Core International, of Owensboro, Ky., will discuss with board members a pilot program that will help children — through the use of a multi-purpose nutritional supplement called Nectavida — to improve their poor eating habits and obtain the nutritional requirements their bodies need to function properly.
According to Gaddy, the use of Nectavida helps solve several nutritional-related deficiency problems in children, including sleepiness, lack of energy, no interest in school, lack of focus, inattentiveness, poor grades and failure to follow instructions.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the commissioners room of the county administration building on East Elm Street.
