    A couple sleeping

    Here are a few dietary changes that can help you fight insomnia.

    • Swap sugary cereal for a wholegrain alternative topped with milk and a sliced banana.
    • Choose protein foods that are rich in an amino acid called tryptophan. This helps boost the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. Chicken and turkey, milk and dairy, nuts and seeds are all good choices.
    • Combine these with rice, pasta or potatoes to help the body get the most benefits from tryptophan. Try a chicken and noodle stir-fry or similar. 
    • Drink warm milk with a cracker or oatcake before bed.
    • Reduce your caffeine intake gradually. Try decaffeinated coffee or other  caffeine-free drinks.
    • Build relaxation and exercise into the day to help manage stress.
    • Many of us form a habit of using a computer late in the evening. Note that the light from the screen can have a stimulatory effect.
