Our expert says:
I don't think that eating cheese at suppertime should give one nightmares! Nightmares are a function of subconscious thought content emerging when one sleeps, not food. Cheese and milk are good sources of the amino acid tryptophan which by means of a chemical reaction increases the levels of a chemical called serotonin in the brain. When serotonin levels rise in the brain one is more relaxed and less depressed, so this could enhance sleep.
