Dear Steve
Congratulations on completing the Argus and for becoming so fit. If you find that you feel peckish at night when you help the children, try having low-FI fruit (apples, pears, plums, citrus) or Pro-Vitas with fat-free cottage cheese (you can buy some really tasty fat-free cottage cheese flavours), or a low-fat/fat-free yoghurt, or have a glass of warm, low-fat milk with honey. All the suggested snacks are low-fat and low-GI so they should not lead to weight gain and they should combat the cravings. The glass of milk is an excellent relaxant which will help you to sleep thanks to the high tryptophan content which boosts your serotonin levels in the brain.
Enjoy

A tip for cottage cheese. Often the flovoured ones are hard to find or are low fat not gat free . I buy plain smooth fat free and then i buy that robertson paste I the paprika works very well) and i add the tip of teaspoon worth to my cottage cheese and it adds sooo much yummy flavour and because you use such a little its less fat then in the low fat cottage cheese.
