Started by experts who love what they do
Foublie was founded in Fall 2017 by Melissa Antal and Maria Rivera. What started as a school project to design a portioned feeding bowl revealed a much bigger problem- parents have no one-stop source for all things child feeding. Melissa got linked to Maria through an old friend at a wedding– thanks, Patrick!– and they’ve been cooking up Foublie together ever since.
Melissa is a behavior change specialist and public health nutritionist. She has worked with moms from Zambia to Cambodia for over 10 years to improve maternal and child nutrition. She holds an MPH from the Milken School of Public Health at George Washington University and is completing her MBA at McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. Melissa is on a mission to change our relationship with food- starting from the first bites.
Maria Rivera is a mom, preventive medicine physician, and board certified pediatrician. Through her work with Foublie she is combining her passions of working with parents, wellness and eating good food! She graduated from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and completed her Pediatrics Residency at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She holds an MPH from Johns Hopkins University and is completing a Preventive Medicine Residency at Johns Hopkins as well. Maria loves teaching parents how to cook nutritious and delicious foods and creating her own baby food recipes for her 9 month old son, Zayn.
