I had the idea the other day, since I've knitted fruit and vegetable toys before, that it would be fun to try to make a few items (three or four) from each food group.  They will also have faces!  All of them!

Here are my ideas so far:

Fats, oils and sweets:
This thread has a bunch!  They are so cute, too!

A cheese wedge would be easy enough, as would an ice cream cone (I could say it's fro' yo', and probably work out the spiral shape).  Any other ideas?

A chicken leg, a fish (would be pretty easy, because it could be made flat), a crocheted egg would be neat.  It's important to include nuts, too, so...a peanut? 

Here's the easy one.  I've already made a pineapple, a banana, an apple, I'm working on a pear, grapes, etc.  The hard part will be deciding which ones to use and which ones to exclude.

Carrots are simple, celery could work too, I really want to try an onion or garlic!

Wheat and stuff:
This one will be tricky, because it's so boring!  A loaf of bread with slices taken out of it is probably what I'll end up doing.  It would also be easy to take a handful of free yarn and call it spaghetti.  A potato! Wait, is that part of this one?  Aren't they technically vegetables?  I don't know.  I also don't care. 

And also:
Since this is an important part of the new food pyramid, cute little blue drops of smiling water would be pretty cool too. 

So let me know if you've knitted any of these before.  I'll have pictures as soon as Craftster lets me post them (I'm still a noob)!

That's a fun idea.

For vegtables you could also do a squash or pumpkin. That might be fun. I've knit a pumpkin from curly purly, it came out real cute.

there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns

Curly purly also has a knitting pattern for eggs.
