These cast musical performances show children they can write their own music and the importance of teamwork. Music on the show is produced by Emmy Award winner David Barrett. He and Brian Brill (another Emmy winner) ensure that the music is tailored for the young audience. All songs offer a positive message about life. Every episode begins with the song "Sweet Company" which sends the positive message of friendship and ends with the singing of "End of Another Day" which encourages the viewer to stay optimistic about tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Now Eat This! With Rocco Dispirito is a different version of a cooking show-different in that the emphasis is on families and changing a family's behavior and cooking culture with the goal of making the family's kids healthier. Families with children or families who want to change their caloric intake habits with the result of greater over all health are well served to watch the program. There are plenty of numbers and nutritional facts to accompany each family's nutritional makeover and the appeal to the 13-16 year-old audience lies in the immediate nature of food and the drive of curiosity to be smarter and better informed (especially to be the smartest in the family at meal times). The data on nutrition, including fat, carbohydrates, and calories, are presented hand drawn on an old-school slate and blackboard-a original and less intimidating way to present facts to an audience. The facts are reinforced by large graphics, which come in as alerts. This style of information matches the gentle but firm personality of host Rocco Dispirito who prods families in the gentlest of ways-reminding families consistently that children are an asset as well as a responsibility when it comes to food preparation. A nice touch is that the camera spends time in the home of the families in each episode instead of just bringing the family to the kitchen set. For engagement of a young audience and for the goal of behavior modification, this is an excellent approach. A young audience likes peers in their programs and the presence of high school age children gives it cache for middle school viewers. The climax of each program is nicely built to feature children as the ultimate judges--watching the children eat and evaluate familiar dishes prepared in a healthier way. Children don't filter in the kitchen! There are not the usual structural elements to help a young audience retain and reflect on information-quizzes, repetition and reinforcement, and chance for independent thinking. But the hook of food and gratification are dependable ways to hold the middle and high school audience-a strategy that advertisers have used for years. Now Eat This! is a healthier and more educational use of that strategy.
