3 Bedtime Snacks To Help You Sleep

Once upon a time in a childhood far, far away “bedtime” was a dreaded affair and we would risk it all to stretch the day out just FIVE MORE MINUTES! Nowadays, we look at sleep with much more affection. It is a time for our bodies to recover, recharge and is a key part of a healthy lifestyle.

That said, nodding off isn’t as simple as just counting sheep. Did you know that what you eat can actually help or hinder you getting a good night’s sleep?

There are many foods that have naturally occurring substances that can help us get a good night’s sleep.

Here are three bedtime snacks that could help you catch some solid Zzz’s…

  1. Cheese on crackers

For this sleepy snack, slice or grate your cheddar cheese of choice and stack on some wholegrain crackers and hey presto!

  1. Yogurt and mixed berries

A small bowl or pot of yogurt is a tasty and smart choice before drifting off to sleep. Just add some mixed berries and a drizzle of honey, 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

  1. Warm milk & honey

This creamy dreamy night-time drink is like a hug in a mug.

You’ll need:

1 mug of milk

1 tablespoon of honey

A few drops of vanilla essence

Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

Next steps:

Heat milk in the microwave or in a saucepan for 2-4 minutes, or until it starts foaming. Once warm, add a tablespoon of honey, vanilla a sprinkle of cinnamon, and voilà!
