    That's ridiculous, I'm not concerned because it is not concerning. If you do the maths, you will find that a child will get more alcohol from juice than most meals cooked with alcohol.

    Yep. When

    you consider that French and Italian children, for example, have been having meals containing wine for god knows how long, and they seem to get by just fine.......with the obvious exception of Silvio Berlusconi.

    Kalgirl, I'm with you. I will defend the right of cooks to use, and even be heavy handed with vanilla extract to the bitter end.

    My daughter has been having Polaramine most of the week every 6 hours. She has probably had more alcohol this week than most of the kids have had in a year with alcohol in cooking. But I would still cry cooking the alcohol out of it.

    HILARIOUS!! yes that was my 2.5 yo!!Guess that's what I get for leaving my iPhone lying around!!

    I don't cook with wine often but would give it to her!! Like other have said the amount they actually get it quite negligible and I don't think it hurts them.

    I find it amusing that people think it is not ok to use alcohol in cooking if they're serving it to kids, but will rub vanilla essence on their kids gums...

    They generally call for "dry" versions. That said, I just choose what I personally would prefer to drink... because you have to buy a whole bottle, but you certainly don't USE the whole bottle just for cooking.

    So I use stuff like Charonnay and Sauvingnon Blanc for the whites and Pinot Noir for red (I don't like red wine, but Pinot Noir is not as intense).
