The "Recipe Rehab" TV show is hosted by Danny Boome and features a rotating cast of acclaimed chefs - Spike Mendelsohn, Candice Kumai, Laura Vitale, Tana Amen, Govind Armstrong , Calvin Harris , and Mareya Ibrahim - competing to help rehabilitate America's favorite recipes and inspire children and their families to make healthy lifestyle choices. Each episode will take a real family's favorite decadent dish, such as fried chicken, macaroni and cheese or nachos, and challenge two renowned chefs to create a lower-calorie, healthier version of the dish, to be analyzed by Everyday Health nutritionists. Once the burners have been turned off and the dishes plated, the family becomes the judge as they cast their votes based on how the new, healthier recipes taste and how easy they are to make, declaring which rehabbed dish and chef will win each week. In the process, host Danny Boome and chefs from the elite "Recipe Rehab" kitchen share their healthy eating tips while inspiring and educating children ages 13-16 and their families to live healthier lives.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Parents need to know that Sea Rescue is a fascinating look at ocean animals in distress and the professionals who help them, but the images of animals with injuries or in danger can be disturbing to young or sensitive viewers, though no gore or blood is shown. The ideas of conservation and taking care of animals is a strong theme, and the workers and volunteers who help the distressed animals are great role models. The show does serve as a backdoor commercial for SeaWorld, who produces the show, so kids might be inclined to ask for a visit after watching.
