Cuisine of Nauru
Nauru has the world's highest rate of obesity.
Like its other island neighbors, Nauruans consume a large amount of seafood, as well as foods made from coconuts and bananas. Coconut milk is also used extensively in Nauru.
Nauruan cuisine is greatly influenced by Chinese cuisine. The Chinese are the major foreign community of the country, and there are a number of Chinese restaurants on the island, most notably in Yaren. In 2010, there were 138 Chinese restaurants in Nauru, in a country of hardly 10,000 people.
The majority of Nauruans are Christians, and members of the Nauru Congregational Church. They often celebrate Christmas with cakes made from banana and coconut.
Some desserts, such as coconut mousse, are consumed on special occasions.
