Started by experts who love what they do
foublie was founded in the summer 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- parents with children with food allergies can be overwhelmed, scared and isolated when feeding there kids. We are here to change that.
