Oh dear, our lawn has grubs! Should we fight them, and if so, how?

The lawn guys said they found grubs in our yard. They recommend killing them with poison, but I'm not sure that's the best/safest solution. First, we have 2 small children. Second, even though the yard is pretty small, we still manage to grow some food in it and not everything has ripened yet. Do we really need to kill the grubs now, or will they spread to our neighbors' yards if we don't get rid of them right away? Is poison the best option and which poison is least harmful to kids and other growing (tomato/cucumber/herb) things? How long does the poison make the food plants unsafe to eat? Thanks!
