Not sure what KIND to buy - anything with ants on the label, it really doesn't matter. I'm not familiar with the names of the products available to the homeowner.
Just do it as I mentioned above and keep the kids off it until it has done its work - usually within 24 hours. Then you can sweep everything away and you won't have to worry about the kids. Kids picking up dropped food after this is really not an issue, these things go by body weight - kids, even little ones, are millions of times larger than your target pest, they would have to eat handfuls of the stuff - for days in a row. They are not going to do that.
