I'm with those who recommend dinner in the city and trying to get some sleep immediately.

Really depends on what type of family you are. If flying is still a novelty, then excitable kids are far more likely to want to max-out the IFE and have the meal rather than serenely put on their eyeshades and go straight to sleep.

Do most people recommend eating a regular meal before the flight? Light meal and then plane meal then sleep? Or wait and eat the plane meal since it helps to better adjust you to UK time? I hear that the snack prior to landing is mediocre at best, so perhaps eating the plane meal is the better of a poor option?

Thanks.
As someone that takes the EWR- LHR or PHL - LHR in economy, if you want to eat on the plane, i suggest ordering veggie special meals for your family- you will get them first and then can sleep till breakfast. You will be woken up by the breakfast service.
