    Don't forget most vanilla essence has alcohol in it as well

    DS does not usually eat the stuff we cook with alcohol in it ( mainly gravy and hardly ever) but all the kids love DH rum and coke ribs - it's 200ml of rum over 2kg of ribs ( approx 40 ribs) and baked for 4 hours then BBQ so I'm not not worried about the tiny amount they make get from the sauce - plus they have so much other ingredients you honestly can't taste the rum at all

    This is my thoughts too. But I would also let my dd have a glass of lemon, lime and bitters. *gasp*.

    I happily cook with alcohol when it's for me and DH. I love red wine in pasta sauce. I used to be okay with it in sauce for the kids until I discovered the 'it all gets cooked out' isn't always true. I'm an impatient cook so my sauces don't simmer for a long time so most of the alcohol would be retained.

    Hmmm, this may be why my kids sleep well after my Bosciola. I never thought to look that up, I had heard it cooks out and thought 30 mins would be long enough.. Uh oh..

    That's a very handy chart btw!

    I do all the time.
    The amount anyone would be consuming is very minimal.

    I don't think I've ever cooked with alcohol for DS but he's only 14 months. If I do use wine in something it's usually a pasta sauce that simmers for a while. Plus as a PP said, by the time you divide that half a cup of wine between 6 serves there's hardly going to be anything in there. So I probably wouldn't really be that bothered feeding it to kids.

    I use white wine in my chicken/mushroom risotto. I use about 1/3 of a cup. Dd eats it but ds doesn't like it. It doesn't phase me.

    Yep, DS eats our pork in cider casserole, it's cooked for 8 hours in the slow cooker so approx 95% of the alcohol is cooked away, split the rest over 6 portions and the amount he's consuming is barely any. I wouldn't give him anything with alcohol in unless it's been slow cooked.
