How well you sleep can have a significant impact on your overall health. According to one expert, it is so important for adults to get seven to nine hours of sleep a night because insufficient sleep impacts your hunger. But if you do wake up in the middle of the night for a midnight snack, there are certain foods you should stay away from, like spicy foods, chocolate and alcohol. Late night snacks to help you sleep include dairy products, nuts and seeds, bananas, honey and eggs, a bowl of cereal, crackers, or bread and cheese. What? No Ramen noodles? And of course My Pillow helps too!
