If you’re a late night snacker, be forewarned. These dietary disasters can kill a good night’s sleep! 

Early birds and night owls agree – when we finally lay our heads down to sleep, we’d like to actually go to sleep, thank you very much. Trouble is, we often reach for a bedtime snack first – and who doesn’t love snacking in bed? Snuggle under the blankets, nosh on your favorite sinful pleasure and switch on Netflix. Bliss.

But food and sleep are uneasy bed partners. Let’s face it, some foods belong on a plate. With napkins close by. If you’re a late-night snacker, we’d love to hear your thoughts on eating in bed. Do it or don’t do it? Best practices for messy foods? Check out our list below and let us know if you agree.
