question-answer-color-v-2Every single time I am in bed and ready to go to sleep, I start to get extremely hungry and need to go have a snack. I eat a balanced dinner around 8:30 every night. Is it really bad to eat right before you go to sleep? What is a good snack before bed? -Carlotta

question-color-v2You don’t want hunger to disrupt your slumber. A snack is a fine alternative to increasing your dinner, and often times a  glass of milk may be enough, or even try a bowl of light cereal. Stick to easily digested starches that promote serotonin levels and help sooth you off to sleep. Examples are: graham crackers, pretzels, Goldfish crackers, white bread, bananas and applesauce. – Debbie M., MS, RD
