There is mixed advice about how much, which types, and when certain foods should be eaten to promote sleep.

However, you can still look to your kitchen before hitting the sack by choosing one of these late-night snacks rich in sleep-inducing nutrients like tryptophan, melatonin, protein, and carbohydrates. A restful night’s sleep is just a bite away.
