    Is Alcohol bad for kids?

    And here's me thinking the Italians invented Rose wine for the children to have with their lunch.

    Only if it's something that's going to be cooked for a long time, only a small amount & Jasper's such a fussy eater he's never actually eaten any anyway.

    But like Osso bucco recipe I have calls for 100 mls for a 4 person serving & its cooked for an hour & jasper would only have a few table spoons of the sauce (so maybe a 10th of the total dish once cooked) over some rice or pasta. That I have no issue with.

    What did peeve me was having trifle at my grandma's house, she's served it to her other grandchildren (who are children) so I didn't even think to ask if it was alcoholic, she watched me plate up for jasper who was 2 and then 10 minutes later she says 'you can hardly taste the brandy in this, I put heaps in and I can't even taste it!' I quickly ripped the rest of Jasper's dessert off him. WTF!!!!

    Just as well jasper pretty much just ate around the cakey, jelly & fruity parts that would be soaked in brandy, and just ate the custard

    Because its not cooked after the alcohol is added. (as far as I'm aware???)

    That's why my kids stayed reverse facing so long - so they couldn't see what was being consumed in the front of the car!

    Yep we do, probably 3 times a week? I make a mean carbonara and it has a fair bit of white wine in it- kids love it!

    I think it's probably a lot to do with its name and people not realizing.
    Bet if it was called "vanilla alcohol" there would be an uproar about it, but because it is vanilla essence people just don't know....
