It’s very often the nibbles that do for our waistlines at Christmas. Nuts are one of my favourite snacks, and they’re full of good things. Depending on the type of nuts you choose they include fibre, calcium, magnesium for strong bones and vitamin E which protects your skin from damage.

Although nuts are healthy, they can also be high in fat and the calories in nuts can quite easily mount up – just take a look at what ONLY ONE of these Christmas goodies will cost you.
