A balance of nutrients will help keep you satisfied and blood sugar level through the night which also aids in sleep from what I have been told Some ideas Whole grain cereal and yogurt English muffin and cottage cheese Nut butter on banana or crackers Oatmeal and milk
Milk. The protein in milk digests slowly. My favorite bedtime meal [I work nights so my schedule is screwy anyway] is a peanut butter and banana sandwich on lite wheat bun and skim milk. This used to be breakfast until I realized the carbs and milk made it more conducive to sleep. Sometimes I have a protein bar with the milk. I have noticed I sleep much better, even during the day.
I like to have a little bit of cheese and 100cal of pretzels. I make little pretzel and cheese sandwiches. Works for me because of the mix of carbs, protein and fat

can't give you anything because we're all different, but I can suggest that you look at what you are craving for when your body is saying its hungry - that might be a good way of elimating the hunger pangs in the future.
I know for myself if I'm hungry going to bed its always for protein which tends to mean grabbing a slab of cold meat or the like which ever has the highest source of protein in the lowest amount of carbs so as to not cause my glucose levels to spike to much while sleeping.
I always end up hungry once I lay down to go to bed. I eat a good dinner and have a snack between dinner and bedtime, but those hunger pains force me to get up in the middle of my sleep. Any ideas or suggestions on a filling nighttime snack?
