For the study, the researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention included parents of more than 5,000 kids ages three to 15. Although the researchers did not determine how many kids developed streaked or spotty teeth as a result of using too much toothpaste, they recommended children under three are only supposed to use a smear of toothpaste the size of a grain of rice, reported Daily Mail.

Kids aged three to six should keep it to a pea-sized amount. Young kids may push for independence in brushing their teeth, but kids' toothpaste tastes sweet, according to the team."You don't want them eating it like food. We want the parent to be in charge of the toothbrush and the toothpaste," noted Hayes.
