My husband and I sailed on the Dawn a couple of years ago and that was our concern as well. The Dawn had a special kids buffet area-complete with all the staples: mac and cheese, chicken fingers, hot dogs. french fries etc...Our servers in the specialty restaurants were able to get our kids whatever was in the buffet for that night. Maybe your ship has the same thing? I would just ask-I am sure they will accomodate you somehow!
