The key ingredient here is a hormone called melatonin, which helps regulate your sleep/wake cycle. When you eat foods that have a lot of melatonin, you may sleep more soundly. And, lucky you, some of the foods that contain melatonin include delicious fruits like tart cherries, bananas, pineapple, and oranges.

And since kiwis taste like candy, you’re getting a double dose of goodness—deliciousness and slumber!
