Since obesity has been on the rise since the 1960s there have been laws implemented in schools, stores, and major franchise restaurants such as McDonalds. There has been action towards preventative care services, nutrition education, increased physical activity, and spreading awareness on the issue through commercials, billboards, and videos such as Weight of the Nation. These regulations include the following:

According to "2012 Shape the Nation Report : Status of Physical Education in the United States", 50 states (98%) have adopted state standards for physical education. Only Iowa does not have physical education standards.

According to a McDonlads Press release September 12, 2012 McDonald’s USA President Jan Fields announced that the company will list calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide to further inform and help customers and employees make nutrition-minded choices.

According to a report through the Kansas Health Institute, Arkansas and California access to vending machines in middle schools is restricted, and California has also prohibit carbonated beverage sales in high schools.
