You are what you eat and it is almost certain that if a particular food is in your cupboard, you will eventually eat it. Therefore one of the tenets of nutrition is that you should only buy food that is healthy. Even with the best of intentions you are very likely to eventually consume any unhealthy food that you purchase. One aspect to healthy nutrition is therefore to be honest about the food that you have in your cupboards. Ideally the food should be food that goes off, and it should be eaten before it has a chance to do so. Most foods with long shelf lives are unhealthy foods, although there are some exceptions like honey, preserves, nuts and seeds, and tea. Most food should be plant based and there should be a very low number of foods in packets and wrappers, as such foods tend to be bad for health. Shopping regularly for fruit and vegetables, and maintaining a healthy supply of green and black tea, high quality meat, and small amounts of dairy and grain foods is the best way to ensure healthy foods in your cupboards.
