 My approach is to introduce them to the basics of coding using ANSI

are coded in different languages, ...)

 Is there a blend with those ANSI C, C++ and java as well as eclipse
installed, so that they can use it from a DVD Debian live version?


Exposing children to C and/or C++ should be considered abuse.  :)

Similarly exposing pointers is just a method of introducing bugs and security holes into programs.

Teach them using a decent object oriented language first so they learn how to write good programs.

Lego or smalltalk, pharo smalltalk has its own IDE so everything is in 1 place

bias included ;)
