Would Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS SLR or 50mm prime be a good choice ? Is it better than 18-135 or 28-135 that is offered with the body ?

I would reiterate the OP's worry about lower quality lenses on the 7D. The EFs 17-55 f/2.8 IS is going to be hard to beat for fast moving kids, especially indoors. The EFs 15-85 IS is a decent compromise, but is a slower lens. That may not be a problem if the lower f/stops have too shallow a depth of field for you.

The 18-135 lens has pretty mediocre image quality and the venerable 28-135 is a much better zoom range on a full-frame camera. For what it's worth.
