How many people have a snack before bedtime and then find they cannot sleep? A light snack before bedtime, which contains the amino acid Tryptophan can help promote sleep.  Protein before bedtime has the reverse effect, high protein foods contain Tyrosine an amino acid which stimulates brain activity.

Good bedtime snacks include tryptophan,calcuim and carbohydrate this combination calms the brain and allows you to sleep better. Think about having a glass of warm milk and ;-

  • half a sandwich of turkey, or peanut butter.  or,
  • a banana and a cup of hot chamomile tea or,
  • whole grain low sugar cereal with low fat milk or yogurt.
