Well, how old are the kids? If they are tall enough to use the stove, I'd say the obvious answer is say "I won't cook it, but you are welcome to cook it yourself." Even if it is just them doing the meat. My guess is that if it becomes their chore, the demands for it will go away.
If that's not feasible, then my second answer is you're the cook. If you don't want to cook it, don't. Honestly, it's not like you are going to deprive them of the opportunity to eat good, nutritious food. Why make yourself unhappy when you're doing all the work?
Finally, I find that Quorn products are really good chicken and turkey substitutes. It's in the freezer case at Whole Foods and most Health Food Stores. They have patties, nuggets, fillets, 'meatballs' and ground Quorn that could easily replace that ground turkey. I find it not only tastes good, but has a better texture than most of the ground beef substitutes. If you don't tell anyone it's not really ground turkey, they probably won't notice.
