Late Night Snacks To Help You Sleep, From Joy Bauer (VIDEO)

When it comes foods that will help you get a great night sleep, health and nutrition expertJoy Bauer suggests a light snack - no more than 150 calories, that has ample amounts of carbohydrates with a little bit of protein. This combination helps the body to produce serotonin, which promotes sleep. A rice cake with a teaspoon of peanut butter makes the ideal night time snack!
