Nighttime snacking’s best bets

Choose wisely what you snack on at night.
Newspaper Metro tells you to choose a food that is high in protein, fiber or healthy fats, which will be more likely to keep a person satiated throughout the night.
Apples and peanut butter, string cheese and fruit, or whole grain crackers and Greek yogurt can be healthy, satisfying nighttime snacks. Avoid sugary, calorie-dense foods, which may be hard to digest and can compromise sleep quality.
