In brief: Little and early
Large meals too close to sleep can distend our stomachs and make us feel uncomfortable disturbing our ability to get to sleep.
(think of large thanksgiving meals). More over, avoid foods that are sugary, too fatty, and foods that can cause reflux, a not too common reason for sleep disturbance.
