Most of us have a designated "snack cupboard" in our kitchen. This is usually a well-stocked cupboard that the family goes to for something to whine about. Have you thought about what you put in the cupboard? Is it full of potato and tortilla chips, cakes, cookies and sweets? If so, you may want to change your habits as these snacks are very fertilizing and have little or no nutritional value at all.

Consider cleaning the snack cabinet by throwing junk food in the trash and replacing it with several healthy snacks that your family will surely love. You can buy several varieties of bulk nuts and put them in plastic containers to keep them fresh. It is very affordable to buy nuts in bulk and if you shop online you will have dozens of different nuts to choose from, ranging from macadamia nuts to pistachios. You can even find flavored almonds on the web that are coated with ranch or barbecue or flavored driven ones that are absolutely delicious.

If your family loves chocolate, you can buy some chocolate-covered sunflower seeds that will satisfy the chocolate cravings while you load your family on vitamin E, B1, B5, magnesium, copper and phosphorus. Sunflower seeds are full of "good fat" which helps to protect the heart from blocked arteries. Sunflower seeds also help lower cholesterol and are packed with fiber to promote easy digestion and prevent constipation. You can also buy raw sunflower seeds, salted, unsalted or dry roasted. Children love them and they can be used in bread and put on salads.

Dried fruit is another great thing to have in your snack cabinet. If you have not tried dried cherries, you will miss a taste experience that is second to none! Not only can you buy dried cherries but also dried bananas, apricots, peaches, apples and pineapples. Dried fruits can also be bought quite cheaply online and you can make these dried fruits even more irresistible to your family by putting out dried fruit and nut baskets or bowls for your family to crunch on whenever they want.

Many people like to make their own healthy cereals with dried fruits and nuts that they buy in bulk. You can simply add your favorites to corn or bran flakes to create a delicious and cheap muesli. Your family expects you to provide them with healthy food and snacks so be proactive and promote healthy eating at home by offering healthy snacks instead of giving them empty calories and lots of sugar.
