Blog World Sleep Day – Snooze Foods

March 17, 2017by admin0

Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.

World Sleep Day is on March 17 each year. Here is a list of foods that help you sleep better.

1. White Rice 

No surprise that rice, which is high in glycemic index is an excellent and almost sure shot shortcut to dose off. So unless you have an important project that needs your attention, enjoy a bowl of rice to sleep like a baby.

2. Chamomile Tea

This particular tea helps insomniacs sleep better. The herbal qualities are scientifically proven to help induce calming effect and sleep. It has a stress busting, nerve relaxing and mild sedative like effect on individuals.

3. Walnut

This wonder nut is a great source of tryptophan and melatonin. Melatonin is a chemical in our body that helps maintain the body clock (i.e morning-night rhythm), while tryptophan helps synthesise serotonin (happy neurochemical) and induces better sleep.

4. Carbohydrate plus protein

Together both of these groups are important for amino acid tryptophan. So if you must snack at night, to help you go to bed, try peanut butter on toast, cheese and crackers or egg and cheese.

5. Curd, warm milk and other milk products

These products can help you sleep well, bust stress and are also a great source of minerals like Calcium. Enjoy a Greek yogurt, or glass of warm milk at night as a pre-bed snack.


Along with the right kind of diet, exercise is also very important. Read our list of Sleep hygiene in our upcoming blog or see the video here.

Happy Snoozing!!
