Whether you're heading home after a long night out, trying to fall asleep after watching something scary, or just hungry after a sub-satisfying dinner, most of us have been in the late-night snack conundrum. You want something, but you don't want to make food, so you turn to your kitchen cupboards hoping there's something tasty.
Even if you don't have a well-stocked pantry, there are a few packaged snacks you should have on-hand for these midnight munchies. Ideally, you should aim for foods that contain nutrients known to help you fall asleep, and eat a smaller portion of them so you're not uncomfortable while your body digests.
With those guidelines in mind, there are so many snacks you can choose from — arguably too many. Here are our sleep-inducing snack suggestions to add to your cart next time you're grocery shopping.
