Looking to create a safe, non-toxic baby/ children's book

I'm looking to create a printed book/magazine that will be as safe as possible for small children kids and babies. Safe in that they can put in their mouths, tear it apart and the risk to them is as low as possible. However, I can't find much information on how to do this.

I've already explored vegetable based inks, non-chlorine paper, compacted cornstarch (edible) paper, and dis-solvable films (similar to those breath mint sheets).
However, each of these options have downsides- Not all colors are available in the vegetable based inks, non-chlorine paper still poses a choking hazard, the cornstarch paper is too lumpy and the colors don't pop enough, and the films require a very large order). Additionally, if it can be eco-friendly, that would be a big plus.
Is there anything else that I should look into?
