Why Milkful

Milkful is Made by a Mom, for Moms.

Breastfeeding is supposed to be one of the most natural things a mother can do. We believe when we get pregnant that it will just happen and we often don’t consider it may not be as easy as it’s made out to be. Some of us need help increasing our milk supply, either because our bodies aren’t producing enough to support our baby’s growth or we simply want more to store or donate.

Many lactation supplements are found in pills, unpleasant teas or sugar-laden cookies full of artificial ingredients. This didn’t make sense to me. As a mom trying to nourish my body when so much was being demanded of it, I wanted more than a snack I dreaded to eat or was basically junk food. I bet you do, too.

You shouldn’t have to choose between a bar that works and a bar that tastes great without tons of sugar and artificial ingredients. Milkful delivers the best so you can be your best.

That's Why I Created Milkful

Milkful bars are a healthy, convenient, energy-packing snack for moms, especially nursing moms who want to increase their milk production and are low on energy. We load our bars with only natural, nutrient-dense ingredients that taste amazing and can help boost milk supply and energy with some of nature’s finest grains, seeds, and nuts.

In fact, thousands of women tell us Milkful bars have improved the quantity and quality of their breast milk in only 1-2 bars per day - and they look forward to eating them!

Our Bars Work

Milkful bars were formulated with Registered Dietitians, Board Certified Lactation Consultants, and our Medical Advisor, Dr. Alex Carrasco, who is a Functional & Integrative Medicine physician specializing in holistic women’s wellness. All of these resources mean our bars go beyond the hype - they actually do what they promise.

The purposeful ingredients we’ve chosen for our bars do more than make our bars taste amazing. They’ve been shown to increase milk supply by thousands of customers who rave about their boost in breast milk after eating 1-2 bars a day. They also contain essential nutrients that can improve and support the mother’s body before, during and after pregnancy.

Our Bars Taste Fantastic

Lactogenic products have the reputation of tasting terrible. We knew we’d have to create a snack that nursing mothers would actually crave if we wanted them to stay a customer. We don’t use masking ingredients or loads of sugar to make our bars taste great; we combine nature’s finest ingredients because we believe nature knows best.

Look at our reviews and you’ll see thousands of moms talk about how great our bars taste. Many say they actually look forward to eating our bars everyday and enjoy every last bite. We are constantly adding new flavors to give nursing moms variety, because we know there are days you just want something different.

Our Bars Are Packed with Nourishment

Milkful bars offer loads of vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber, plus a high dose of lactogenic ingredients which support a healthy milk supply and sustained energy levels for mom- the nutritious, delicious way.

- Iron
- B-vitamins
- Amino Acids
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Omega-6 Fatty Acids
- Phytoestrogrens
- Calcium
- Antioxidants

As you can see from the list of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients above, we weren’t messing around when we created our lactation bars. We loaded the best lactogenic ingredients nature has to offer into every bar so both the mom and the baby get what their bodies need.

But we didn’t stop there. Moms do more than nurse. Our bodies need nutrient-dense ingredients that are easily digestible, provide natural energy and can support healthy organ function.

Let Food Be The Medicine

Not every mom produces enough milk for her growing baby. It’s okay. I’ve been there. Lots of us have. Sometimes you need a little help to get those boobies flowing and your body feeling good again. Your body is still working hard during this time and you probably don’t have the time you once had to get the nutrients your body craves.

Feel Good about What You’re Putting into Your Body

One of the main reasons I created Milkful was because I couldn’t find a lactation support product I wanted to put into my body, let alone transfer to my nursing baby. Milkful gives mothers the best of what their bodies need and nothing it doesn’t. Only wholesome, premium ingredients go into our bars and into your body. Why?

Because when boobies are happy, babies are happy!
