I want to introduce my kids to Dune. They're not old enough to read the original book. Which would be more appropriate for them, the 80s movie or the more recent miniseries? Which follows the book more accurately?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The miniseries is more literal, but I think the film captures the essence of the book better. IIRC there is a nude scene in the miniseries. How old are the kids? The miniseries is long and a bit slow, the film may hold their attention better.
