Could also be allergies. I know of an awesome wellness company that focuses on all natural ingredients for the house and personal care products, the same kind that we are already purchasing at the grocery stores but they are much safer, much better, and much healthier. Many products out there (from baby shampoos, to lotions, to dish washing soap, to detergent for laundry, etc.) have so many toxic ingredients that cause mild to serious health problems short term and long term. I have found a great company and I am proud to also be working for them as well and even better I get to work for them from home. Many people have joined our team, mostly moms who want to stay home after having their children and are very successful. If you want some more information contact (Debra Mendoza, NewWellness4you.com and livetotalwellness.com/damendoza)

You could try a humidifier if her sinuses seem dry, but if they are nice and moist it probably won't make a difference. Saline drops might work too, but really it may be that the sound of her breathing is more bothersome to you than to her. She probably couldn't care less that she makes snorting noises when she breathes. :)

If it is a continuing problem you should mention it at your next pediatrician appointment. It could be caused by an allergy to dust or dander, or even by a food allergy. But more than likely it's just the reaction of a nose that's never breathed in anything before to having to breathe in all the air particles that we deal with every day.
