Our Mission

Our goal at Máthair Bars is simple: To make homemade, delicious, plant-based, allergen-free, nutrient-dense bars that:
1.  Aid in fueling your body and increasing breast milk production.
2. Provide a snack option that supports a healthier lifestyle.

Our Baker

Heather Parker's grandfather owned a bakery in Brooklyn, NY., so baking is in her genetic make-up. His spirit seems to pour out of her when she’s baking these bars. 

Heather is also a big believer in how extraordinary women are, the importance of family, living life well, and the power of delicious food.  When not in the kitchen, Heather is a wife and proud mom of her vivacious son…the inspiration for Máthair Bars.

Founding Story

The ideas for Máthair Bars originated in 2022 when we started making lactation bars for a local doula. The positive responses started rolling in immediately.


That lead to our first pop-up stand at the Del Ray farmers market in Alexandria, VA in June 2023, where we sold out that day. 


Since then we've been selling bars at local farmers markets, festivals and online. Along the way we've learned that:

  • People have a lot of food allergies/avoidances.

  • There is a need for nutrient dense snack bars for everyone. 

  • Nutritious, plant-based, allergen-free, homemade food can and should be both affordable and delicious. 


We are so proud of our bars. We hope you enjoy eating them as much as we love baking them.
