Regulation of the Day 101: Brushing Teeth After Meals

This one comes from Massachusetts:

[A]ny child who has a meal in day care or is in care for more than four hours will be required to brush their teeth, according to the Department of Early Education and Care.

Regulators, perhaps recognizing the rule’s almost literal paternalism, are allowing parents to opt out if they wish.

I’m researching right now to see if day care providers are required by law to make sure the children in their charge eat their vegetables.
