Well latex is water based. Im not sure i would still want to eat it however! But from an off gas point of view i think its probably better then alkaline paints. Low gloss paints do not have the scratch resistance that the higher glosses due however. I used to sell paints and i know that for items such as cribs and play toys that require being painted for babies that they recommend latex incase the child chews on the toy...which most babies will. I can't guarantee anything...if anything at all, i would get the phone number off the can and call the mfg to ask...just to be safe.
