Fashion Forward

Send your kids back to school in style with graphic tees highlighting local landmarks from New Skool.

It has since expanded into clothing and art for all ages. Kids SF Tee Set: $38. shopnewskool.com.

Brain Food

Make a smart choice in snacking with Little Brainiac Fruit & Veggie Squeezies and applesauce from Brainiac Foods. Two Bay Area dads, backed by a panel of experts, created the South San Francisco company on a quest to provide brain-building nutrients for their kids. Their pouches include Omega 3s, choline and lutein, and use ingredients that are sustainably produced, minimally processed and nutritionally sound. $16.99-29.99 for 12-20 pack. brainiacfoods.com

Backpacks With Personality

Get your little one excited for school with a personalized backpack from Petit Paradis Kids. Add not only their name but their skin, eye and hair color, and more.

Out of This World Snacks

Two Bay Area working moms on a mission to find healthy, convenient snacks for their kids launched San Ramon-based Moon Fruit, freeze-dried fruit snacks made with whole fruit and no added sugar, preservatives or artificial flavors or colors.
