BananaHere are some healthy snack ideas from sleep guide Beth Irvine to help you get a better night's sleep.
Banana with a small glass of milk - A small banana is best, as they still contain a large amount of sugar. Combining the amino acid tryptophane with carbohydrates as well as calcium and magnesium can help your brain relax and your body nod off to sleep.
Small bowl of oatmeal or cereal with milk - Look for a high fiber cereal and try to avoid oatmeal with a lot of extra sweetner. In addition, calcium has been proven to help the brain use and process tryptophan, while magensium, a natural sedative, acts as an "assistant" to calcium helping it to be absorbed into your system.
Small yogurt with granola sprinkled on top - This is good because you can get cups of yogurt that are pre-portioned. Make sure that you are not overeating, as too much food puts your digestive system into overdrive, keeping you awake.
