Our bites make for a delicious, wholesome snack that also helps boost and maintain your milk supply.
But we get it! One to two bites might not be enough for your energy needs. Or maybe you don’t feel like you have the time to make a traditional meal so you’re reaching for a bag of our Nourishing Lactation Bites to help get you through the day.
As much as we pride ourselves with the whole ingredients in our bites, we understand the importance of getting a wide variety of nutrients and balanced food combinations. As a breastfeeding mother, you need to adequately nourish yourself for both you and your baby. That’s why we’re sharing how to make Majka Lactation Bites a complete a meal and a more filling, balanced snack!
What Makes Majka Nourishing Lactation Bites Nutritious?
Our Majka Nourishing Lactation Bites aren’t your typical lactation cookie. They’re a healthy, convenient snack for nursing moms on the go! Plus, they’re the first refrigerated lactation cookie on the market (that can also be enjoyed unrefrigerated).
Each bite is packed with superior ingredients that supplement your daily nutrition and support healthy lactation production. Unlike many lactation snacks you’ll find at the store, our recipe is made from natural ingredients — no more worrying about the nutrition label!
Every Majka Bite contains nutritional benefits without unnecessary calories, added sugars, or artificial ingredients.
Our bites contain various superhero foods, including:
- Black Sesame Seeds: Black sesame seeds can help increase milk supply and are loaded with nutrients. They’re an especially good source of iron, zinc, calcium, which are needed in higher amounts by breastfeeding mamas.
- Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s in chia seeds can convert to DHA in the body. DHA is a type of omega-3 fatty acid that is crucial for development. Since your baby gets DHA from breast milk it’s important to increase your consumption of omega-3 fats and supplement.
- Coconut: A delicious and nutritious source of fiber and healthy fats like medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Unlike other fats, MCTs rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body and can be used as instant energy versus stored as fat. Since the month of MCTs in breast milk varies based on the mother’s diet, it’s very beneficial to include this in your diet.
- Fenugreek: Fenugreek has been used to increase milk supply for centuries. It’s one of the best herbal galactagogues.
- Glossostemon Bruguieri: Glossostemon Bruguieri is a plant commonly consumed in Egypt for its ability to increase milk supply. It’s also rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron, which are essential nutrients for new moms.
- Oats & Flaxseed: High fiber superfoods like oats and flaxseed support healthy digestion while meeting your daily manganese intake. Additionally, oats contain beta-glucan, giving them lactogenic powers.
- Turmeric: As a natural anti-inflammatory compound, turmeric can help reduce the risk of mastitis during lactation. This spice also improves brain function and increases dopamine levels; these properties support a positive mood that can help beat baby blues.
Majka Nourishing Lactation Bites: Recommended Use
For optimal lactation support, we recommend eating one to two bites per day. For increased milk supply, enjoy your bites an hour before breastfeeding or pumping! For more filling snack adding foods with volume may be helpful since the bites are very nutrient-dense and can add up quickly.

How To Make Majka Nourishing Lactation Bites A Full Meal
For breastfeeding moms, we recommend focusing on building meals around the 3 macronutrients, fiber-rich carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats.
- Fiber-Rich Carbohydrates: Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, like oats, quinoa, and brown rice are full of antioxidants and B-vitamins you need to sustain energy and promote healing. Fiber is also extremely important for digestion and stabilizing blood sugar.
- Protein: Poultry, grass-fed beef, seafood, eggs, yogurt, cheese, nuts, seeds, and beans are necessary for rebuilding tissues and muscles. Protein also helps keep you satisfied.
