Macaroni Kid's content is determined by our local and national editors. We select content which we believe will be the most relevant and interesting to our family-focused readers. Occasionally, we will feature content provided by our sponsors. When we do this, we'll let you know then and there. We'll never try to sneak something past you.

On occasion, we will send dedicated emails on our sponsors' behalf. These will be clearly marked, "Sponsor Email" or similar to identify them as paid content. You will also recognize these with our Macaroni Kid branding.
