    One tip I've used is substituting apple juice for white wine.
    Alcohol doesn't entirely banish in cooking, a recent article I read said there is quite a bit of it left. That said I only ever use a small amount when cooking a large dish so I tend not to worry too much.

    I don't use alcohol when cooking at all and nor would I serve anything of such to my kids. Alcohol doesn't banish entirely when cooked in foods. I'm surprised actually at the amount of people that aren't concerned about their kids eating meals containing alcohol.

    Not as DS is only so little. Once he is a little older I will though. We have lots of Japanese food that's cooked with sake and mirin. And also I use wine in cooking a lot too.

    Yes, I find it helps them sleep.

    The hangover the next day is a little annoying to deal with but well worth it for a good nights sleep. That crazy high amount of alcohol really does wonders.

    Thanks, that is interesting

    I might use 50mL in a recipe that would make 6 serves (probably less kid serves). The wine is 14% so that is about 7mL, but only 35% is not burnt off = 2.5mL, over 6-7 serves = approx 0.4mL alcohol (IF the child actually eats all of his serving!)

    Fruit juice has 0.1% which = 0.25mL in a 250mL cup which really isn't much different... and I'm sure some kids drink more juice than that.

    Yes, if I tell him there's alcohol in it he eats all his dinner.

    Wonky, you're doing it wrong. You're meant to tell them there is alcohol in good foods that you don't want to share, for example:

    *you retrieve custard tart from fridge, sit down to devour it and feel little eyes tranfixed on you*
    Child: "yum, I like those"
    You: "No sweetie, it has alcohol in it...sorry" *fake sad face*

    This exact thing happened at my house this morning hahaha.

    Im okay with DD eating food cooked with alcohol so long as its not too much....half a cup of white wine in a pasta sauce is okay but something like a cake made with a 2 cups of brandy id probably say no. (MIL likes her homemade brandy cakes lol).
