Your question belies common sense. Eating off a painted plate whether safe paint or not is that cutting food on the plate will scratch it and eventually loosen the paint and you or someone could ingest the particles.

Maybe they could apply the clear finish that they put on the pottery after the customer has painted on the glaze. If the plates won't stand up to another run through a kiln, and after reading only a few of the links, for availability and cost, I like the idea of using a spray shellac. I would test it's adhesion by spraying the back of one of the plates with a number of coats maybe more and letting it cure for a good while, like weeks.
Then to test it's ability to hold up to utensils, I'd see if it scratches with a table knife, and give it a good scrubbing with an SOS pad or steel wool - not but a coarser grade. If the shellac doesn't hold up well enough, I'd move up the price point and, probably the skill required for application, and order something online. Whatever epoxy or acrylic or other product I was thinking of using, I would not necessarily trust the vendor but I would also look on fda.
I'm looking for something that will coat the plate so I can safely eat off it, and be able to clean the plate. Seal your plate to preserve the design, then use a clear glass plate on top to eat from.

I tried to buy cute drinking glasses. I'd find an adorable pair of bar glasses at a thrift store, adorned with different birds, and drop a pretty penny on them.
And then, within weeks, I'd break one, maybe two, then three, and have a really strange amount of glasses left. Like, why do I have three bird glasses? Because at one time, I had six. I tried even buying extra glasses.
I'll get a set of six, so if two break, I still have four! Nope — last time I checked, the last set I did that on, I now have one. So, I've learned my lesson.
I no longer buy even remotely costly drinking glasses. It's just not something that is financially viable for me. I don't buy flimsy, thin glass, either. I can only handle thick, sturdy, cheap drinking glasses. The trouble is, they're not always so pretty. So, IKEA to the rescue! I had fawned over some drinking glasses that looked exactly like these at a beautiful store called Pluk when I visited Amsterdam. Even if I tried super, duper hard! They were very similar, sans the beautiful gold rim, and I just knew a DIY project had been born.

Since the paint is on the outside and will not come into contact with the food it is unlikely to be a problem if it had lead in it unless a child chewed on the paint. Actually, if you are painting the outside of the container, then food safety is not as big an issue as long as no paint comes in contact with the inside or the sealing lip of the container or lid.
If the metal is in good condition and adhering well, you might be able to sand the surface with grit sandpaper for adhesion, then spray with an enamel paint. Test a small spot first to make sure there is no reaction between the new and the existing paint. If there is, you will have to strip off all the old paint, apply a primer, then paint. As long as you do not spray the insides of the container with spray paint where food will be keptand you let the painted pieces dry unsealed tops off of the container in a well ventilated area for 48 hours then you will be okay.
The next question is, are these containers metal or plastic? If the containers are metal, lightly sand the surface for better paint and primer adhesion.
I would say prime the containers either way as it will add durability to these containers. Your plan is entirely fine.

I could not find much information about it. I'm a bit confused about that I had similar questions and got involved in a bit more research than you seemed to have done.

The use of gold foil on the interior of the ivory chaire tea caddy lids actually is based in tradition coming from centuries past. It is related to detecting poison mixed into the matcha in the violent times in which much of Chanoyu Tea Ceremony traditions and practices were refined. The poisions typically in use in those days would cause the gold to change color This initially highly functional tradition has been passed down into modern Chado Way of Tea as a ritualistic part of the practice.
Raw gold, gold leaf and gold luster are three different things. Leaf is applied with an adhesive which may have food safety issues, and luster is fired on, which may also have food safety issues. Research thoroughly. Genuine gold leaf can be fired onto the surface of the fired glaze.
