Magnesium is great for encouraging sleep. Epsom salt baths are also very helpful.
Certain foods are good for inducing sleep because of the Trytophan in them: turkey, chicken, yogurt, and peanut butter are a few. Yogurt is particularly good because it also has good amounts of calcium and magnesium. Also, a complex carb like whole wheat toast or potato is good. I well chosen bedtime snack sometimes makes the difference for me and my ds who is also a terrible sleeper.
