Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Mike & Will bring cooking to a young audience who can easily relate to, not just one, but two of their own. Being able to cook is a great way for kids to contribute to the family, as well as giving them a sense of pride and accomplishment. Just as important is the ability to help make the family budget go farther by encouraging everyone to eat at home more often. Eating a meal together is also a great way for family members to spend time together on a regular basis. Kids should encourage their parents to join them at the dinner table, it should be a place to relax and enjoy the meal, as well as an opportunity to have a family conversation. Wonderful ways to bring the family together, but when it's done by the kids, it gives parents a break from the kitchen. And finally, Kids Cooking for Kids wants to spread the word on child hunger. There are millions of children around the world who do not get enough to eat. Mike & Will show kids how they can help make sure no child goes hungry. Kids Cooking for Kids uses the technique of near peer mentors i.e., children to teach other children. Each episode employs the hosts, Mike & Will to appeal directly to young people, as well as their parents. The adults in the show provide professional expertise, but the young hosts are the primary focus and draw of the program. Their youthful interaction make kids feel comfortable and allows the learning process to have a greater impact.
