I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that at daycare, and in Dad's care, bad behavior is dealt with swiftly, firmly, consistently and not tolerated.

I'm going to bet that mom is a "softie" and has uttered in the past something similar to "boys will be boys".
In my house, my children know that pulling a stunt like you described-"mealtime is a mess, dumping their milk in their food, throwing food" would tell me that they are no longer hungry, and since they are done with dinner, the dog can eat the rest, no dessert, no playtime, and straight to bed.

IDK how you're going to tactfully put this to the mother, but I'm seeing a common denominator with bad behavior, and it's MOM.
Spouse of a daycare provider....which I guess makes me one too!
