Recommended solder for 7 y.o.?

Sorry if this has been asked, but which solder is recommended for use by a 7 y.o.?

Of course with any solder, we are aware that a well ventilated and washing hands are required to use safely.

While lead free is best for the long term. I use 60/40 for beginners learning to solder because it is much easier to get good results. I have them wash up after class. Maybe get a small roll of .032 60/40 then switch to lead free after a few hours of practice.
