In doing my first-ever round of Back-to-School coverage this year on The Rock Father, I started running across some things that were new to me overall... some of which I wasn't even aware of until they showed up at my door. One example: Funley's Delicious. An assortment of SUPER CRACKERS and WHOLLY GRANOLLY CLUSTERS arrived here for review consideration, and to say that they were a hit is an understatement... they were gobbled up by kids and grownups alike, sending this Dad and some fellow parents on a hunt for more.

Last week, I got my Back-to-School coverage started here on The Rock Father with a dual-batch of Lunch Box Goodness (here and here). While we've already touched on style and edibles, one area that can often be a:) No fun; and b:) Wasteful, is napkins. Even though some paper napkins can be recycled, we all know that most kids are going to toss those right into the trash and onto the landfill they will go. Making things both fun and environmentally friendly, Funkins are reusable cloth napkins for kids. But they're not only "napkins," we use them as placemats, too. All the time.

Earlier this week, I did a post about 10 Cool Lunch Boxes for Kids. What I didn't touch on then was what to pack in those lunch boxes, and with Back to School season in full-effect, the folks from Annie's, HONEST Kids, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield (all of which have some representation in our fridge & pantry) have stepped-in with an appropriately-named movement called ROCK THE LUNCH BOX. Data shows some interesting numbers when it comes to lunches, and it's something I'm paying attention to - especially since I have one extremely picky eater here at Rock Father HQ. Take a look at the infographic below for some stats...

Back to School. I do believe that this is the very first Back to School post that I've ever done on The Rock Father. While we didn't have a real "break" since we kept her in activities this summer at the same place... with the same teachers... and mostly the same class... our oldest will be Back to Preschool this Fall, and that got me thinking about one of the coolest aspects of the season: New supplies. That said, I'd been looking at lunch boxes (and totes and bags) and decided to compile some of my favorites here on the site. Take a peek at the list below. I've even given you some rock to listen to while browsing...
