Pediatrician & Nutritionist Approved

Foublie was founded in the fall of 2018 by Melissa Antal and Maria Rivera. What started as a project to explore how parents feed their children and approach nutrition revealed a big problem, feeding your baby and children can be overwhelming and at time scary, especially if your child has a food allergy. We are here to change that.
