I tried the following but it does not work:
func process(delta):
for child in $GridContainer.get
children(): = "New Text"

I get Error:
Invalid set index 'text' (on base: 'String') with value of type 'String'.

Your problem is that both name and text are individual properties of a button. To change the text, you just want this:

child.text = "New text"
