Have you tried several remedies to induce sleep and you are still unable to fall asleep? Worry no more, as these are foods that can help you sleep.

1. Walnuts

One of the best foods you can eat before bed is walnuts because eating it makes the human brain secrete melatonin which is responsible for regulating the body's internal clock.

2. Cheese

Eating a moderate amount of cheese is nutritious and can also help to give a good night’s sleep. But, when consumed in excess, cheese can be a poor choice if you want to maintain a healthy body weight.

3. White rice

White rice is high in glycemic index which means it can promote sleep. Eating white rice before bed won't cause you to gain a lot of weight because of it's low fat and caloric content.

4. Cereal

Cereal is great, especially before going to bed as they are low in fat and carbohydrates that can cause blood sugar levels to act in a way that automatically induces sleep.

5. Honey

One of the world's most applicable foods is honey because it has a lot of health benefits to offer, one of which is a good night's sleep.

6. Milk

Milk which is high in calcium and protein also contains the sleep-inducing aminoacid known as Tryptophan that produces a calming effect when consumed thus automatically making you fall asleep. No wonder babies go straight to sleep after a bellyful of breast milk.
