1- Get rid of any Apple or proprietary OS devices. Avoid Micro$oft, as their new tablet screens can record fingerprints and send them to whatever data center the company wants.
2- Go with the available GNU-Linux tablet systems, like Android (especially its forks like Cyanogenmod) or Ubuntu Touch. Since Google is also an NSA contractor, you may better go for the open-source, community-driven alternatives, that aren't too difficult to install. (It's an issue of wherever you feel it's okay that the NSA profiles your children since early age, so the future government can keep watch over them more than you ever will...)
Then there's some people working out solutions for Ethernet on Android, and there are Android eth drivers. Just follow the links, or do a search with "android Ethernet (or LAN)"
Then you can get cheap Ethernet-MicroUSB adapters on Ebay or elsewhere. Apple-compatible adapters would cost you 5+ times the price
Screen resolution is actually even more important than EM radiations from the Wifi, as the lower resolutions will have screen refresh frequencies at the EVIL 60 hz, which will burn the retina or your kids quicker than you can imagine, and also mess up their nervous system. Especially given the fact your children will get their eyes plugged on video games at close range and long exposure. There's some tablets out there, even Android ones, pushing for the highest resolutions possible, so they won't be too bad for the eyes.
But the best solution, even if unrealistic, would be to not provide them any of those devices, as it will one way or another turn them into technological slaves, or human drones, if they aren't like that already.
It's also a mental health issue.
