Marta De Wulf's favorite food growing up was Chicken Kiev, and she still has nightmares about lima beans! As a child, Marta loved to cook, but found recipes constricting. As a result, many interesting dishes were created - and some big messes! Marta's interest in health, as it pertains to the foods we eat, began at the age of 14 when all of her friends were eating only cookies for lunch! Marta's 20-year career as a nutritionist has given her insight into the role food plays in each of our lives. One of Marta's obese clients asked her, "Why didn't anyone teach me basic nutrition when I was in 2nd grade and began to gain weight?" It was after hearing this that Marta designed and taught a children's nutrition program to over 2,800 students between the ages 5-12 - it was here that the Food N' Me™ table was set!
Frederic De Wulf grew up with a chocolate croissant in one hand and home-grown brussels sprouts in the other - talk about balance! Frederic grew up with 8 siblings where family meals were mini events - laughter, play and lots of food! Frederic, having had a camera in his hand since age 12, has had an extensive 30-year career in multimedia, producing documentaries with Bill Moyers, Jacques Cousteau and National Geographic, and a digital media career at Microsoft and Turner Broadcasting. This, along with his love of food and wellness, has brought a lot to the Food N' Me™ table!
