Warm milk (as mentioned before) and a turkey sandwich can help. Turkey contains large amounts of l-tryptophan which is an amino acid that increases production of seratonin and melatonin, helping you sleep.
Some more information about it:
If you can't sleep the worst thing you can do is lie in bed tossing and turning. It's better to get up for 30 mins or so, read, watch TV for a bit or whatever and then go back to bed when you start to feel tired.
Lavender oil is good at helping to induce relaxation. You can heat some in a special burner or sprinkle a few drops of oil on the pillow before going to bed .
