A poll found 44 per cent - many over 45s - now buy cashews or other nuts as an alternative to crisps, reports The Daily Express.

Nuts are packed with omega-6, which boosts brainpower. And 36 per cent opt for dried fruit and not sweets.

"Consumers now want a nutritious snack," said Amy Lloyd, Mintel food and drink expert.
