About Us

Macaroni Kid was founded with two very specific goals: enrich communities and empower moms. We call it "E2" and it is the driving force behind all that we do.


We enrich communities by connecting the libraries, schools, rec centers, community centers and all of the wonderful organizations and businesses that create programming and fun for kids and families with local families.

We empower moms by supporting our Publishers and giving them the tools, training and the platform to build their businesses and be a force for good in their communities.

So what does Macaroni Kid do?

Macaroni Kid publishes weekly, hyper-local e-newsletters and websites featuring events, activities, products and places for moms, kids and families. We host local events and parties and connect with our communities via our rich and extensive social media channels.

Each community is managed by a local Publisher Mom or dad. They are the go-to parents in their communities and connect both online and off.

They know their local communities and their local communities know them.

On top of 500+ local editions, Macaroni Kid publishes several national editions focused on special interest content: Macaroni Kid Family Travel, Macaroni Kid Family Wellness, Macaroni EATS for the family foodies, Macaroni Kid Family Safety, Stroller Traffic and Macaroni Kid National.

We've Joined the CertifiKID Family!

In August 2020, Macaroni Kid was acquired by CertifiKID. Widely recognized as one of the best deal websites for parents, CertifiKID helps parents provide incredible experiences for their kids on a budget. From family outings to kids' summer camps, to children's theatre and museums, to birthday parties and family getaways, CertifiKID connects parents with amazing family-friendly fun in your community at prices that won't break the bank.

In April 2019, CertifiKID was featured on ABC's Shark Tank. CertifiKID founders and Washington, D.C.-area parents, Jamie & Brian Ratner, secured a strategic investment with Kevin O'Leary (aka "Mr. Wonderful"). The partnership catapulted CertifiKID into expanding its family-friendly deals to parents nationwide.

With Macaroni Kid joining the CertifiKID family, we are now one of the largest parent-focused digital media and advertising companies in the country, reaching millions of families nationwide. We're excited to be the premier resource for moms & dads nationwide to discover and save on everything their families want and need.
