Like Scott said, there’s debate about whether finishes are food safe. I’m of the opinion that they are once they dry.

If you want one proven safe, use one of the common shellac and wax turning finishes, like HUT. Shellac is a common food additive (puts the shine on candy, for example), it’s alcohol based, and carnauba, paraffin, and beeswax are all nontoxic/indigestible.
