The paper presents an extension to the standard evolutionary programming (SEP) technique, which incorporates the concept of fitness based offspring generation. Each parent in the population tries to solve the problem of surviving into future generations by the controlled generation of offspring. Offspring generated by parents with good environmental support have a high chance of survival as compared to the offspring generated by other parents. It is argued that generating more offspring from a low fit parent yields a high chance for the survival of its progeny. As a consequence, a modification is required to the SEP to generate more offspring than the number of parents. Experimental results for the selected problems are compared with the results obtained by the SEP technique
