The U.S. Department of Agriculture is taking its "healthy eating guidelines" to social media.

It's all part of the department's "My Plate" program, which is making nutrition tips, recipes and educational resources available on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. The department says it chose to participate in social media to make it easier for consumers to find simple and practical guidance about healthy eating.
