I think “and family” is fine.

If there’s one child, writing out their name is fine too. People probably won’t be comparing how their invitations are addressed so they won’t know you put “and family” on some and the child’s name on others.

If you omit the child’s name or and family completely the correct assumption is that children are not invited.

We do not have inner envelopes either and are addressing the main envelope as The Lastname Family, followed by the address. So that will cover 4 people invited (My Aunt and Uncle, and 2 cousins that live at home aged 21 and 17).
