  Our top foods to help you drift into a sweet slumber:

 The golden oldie in sleep remedies, herbal teas have a sedative effect allowing you to get the sleep you need.
 Bananas
This fruit releases natural chemicals into the body which helps the body drift off into a peaceful sleep.
 Yoghurt
This snack contains Tryptophan, an amino acid involved with inducing sleepiness and relaxation. Plus its easy to digest, so gentle on a pre bedtime tummy.
 Honey
The glucose in honey helps to turn your brain off after a busy day. Be careful not too have too much though,1 tablespoon is plenty.
 Dark Chocolate
The perfect excuse for a sweet treat after dinner. Dark chocolate contains serotonin, which helps to relax both your body and mind.
