Foods to eat for a good night’s sleep!


Hi everyone,

So today in class my teacher gave us a list of all the right foods to eat for a good night’s sleep and I have to share it with you all! I always have such a hard time getting to sleep, falling asleep, and staying asleep. I wake up to any loud noise and if I am awaken by anyone or anything I cant go back to bed, which is so annoying. It is such a pain to have to take medication to try to get a great night’s sleep and by the way isn’t good for us to be popping pills every night! So why dont you all give this a try and see if it actually works. Do any of you have the same problem? Well hope that these yummy treats help you guys fall asleep!
