    Yes quite worrying the parents that aren't concerned about it really.
    Have to say I'm flabbergasted and hope some of the comments on here are not for real such as a small amount of alcohol doesn't harm children

    AFM - Nope, no alcohol in food here.. I hate alcohol in cooking so never use it..(Im that pain in the butt at restaurants who orders everything without the wine..they probably spit in my food )

    They may have had it with their FOB but unlikely as he generally fries everything he feeds them.

    I can actually understand people saying the amount of alcohol is negligible. 4-85% is left depending on cooking time, preparation, and then the amount given to kids out of the whole batch might be quite small. Plus some foods have tiny traces of alcohol like vanilla essence (or is it extract?) and they're still considered okay. I think its something parents can judge for themselves since they know how long they cook for etc.

    Just saying, for me, I don't use it anymore. For one thing, I don't cook for long. Not patient enough, hehe.

    Yep. Like in Spaghetti Bolognese which I make in bulk. 2kg of mince plus everything else, 1 cup of wine and it is on the simmer for 4 hours or more.

    As far as I'm concerned, there is less alcohol left in that, than in lemon lime and bitters which is the "pregnant woman's" drink.

    Seriously in an adult serving of food cooked with alcohol, there is like 0.1ml of alcohol (based on a 1 cup of alcohol and 2 hrs cooking time, which lets face it, is average cooking time for recipes that use alcohol) so if my DD eats 1/8 of what I eat, then the amount she would ingest would make her OJ as alcoholic as my glass of wine compared to what's in her dinner.


    WooHoo! Another iphone!

    Yes I do feed my kids stuff cooked with alcohol as previously posted, the amount is negligible, and no. Ore than most fruit juices. Mind you my kids rarely get fruit juice, one cup at night with their dinner.

    I also see cooking with alcohol is a very different action than letting kids drink/taste alcohol.

    Mind you, my kids are 8 and 10, whereas I probably wouldn't give a food cooked with alcohol to a very small child

    You would have to prise the french vanilla extract (64%) from my cold, dead hands before I gave up baking with it. Can you imagine a childhood bereft of pikelets, cakes, custards and homemade biscuits that contained vanilla? Sadder than sad.

    Or creme brulee? OMG, please don't outlaw the eating of creme brulee!
    Will no-one think of the children?
