  • KIND Banana Nut Clusters in Low-Fat Milk 
This granola's made with 100% whole grains, which are high in the carbs that will help you score a more regular circadian rhythm. Low-fat milk is also full of tryptophan, which converts to serotonin and melatonin in the brain and may have a sedative effect.

  • Cherries
These fruits actually contain a decent amount of carbohydrates (about 24 grams per cup), and they're one of the only natural sources of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate your sleep cycle. As an added bonus, each cup is just 100 calories.

  • Yasso Frozen Greek 
In addition to a hearty dose of carbs, each bar has eight to 10 percent of your daily recommended intake of calcium, which can help regulate melatonin production to get your sleeping habits in check. You’ll also get a good dose of tryptophan, which is found in high-protein foods.

  • Whole-Grain Crackers
If you tend to nosh on chips before bed, try a serving of 100% whole-grain crackers instead. Not only are they high in carbs, but they’re also a good source of vitamin B, which may help prevent insomnia, according to some studies.

  • Almond Butter on Bread
To keep it simple, you can't go wrong with a slice of whole-grain bread topped with a tbsp of almond butter (since almonds provide a solid dose of magnesium, which may promote sleep and muscle relaxation). It’s quick,and high enough in carbs to get your insulin pumping.
