Cereal may be one of the most popular breakfast food options, but it also makes for a good meal before bed. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the combination of cereal and milk can lead to better sleep.

The cereal contains carbohydrates with a high glycemic index and the milk is full of calcium. When calcium enters the body the amino acid called tryptophan converts into melatonin and serotonin and helps the body sleep better.
