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 overall 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 the 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.
