Am thinking of making a risotto and recipe includes white wine. Can 3yr old and 10mth old DS's eat this? Does cooking take the alcohol content out of wine? or is this a dumb question?

Yes, cooking wine takes the alcohol out.

Even if it didn't tbh they could eat it. Orange juice and other juice drinks have tiny levels of alcohol in them as well, due to the natural fermentation process and we don't think twice about giving our kids OJ.

The alcohol evaporates. Not that a little would do them any harm.

I give food with wine in to mine (3 and nearly 1 - except that the nearly 1yo doesn't eat what we do yet because we are being cautious about wheat and dairy, but when we introduce them soon he will).

It doesn't all evaporate, but the amount that is left in and then actually ends up in the child's portion is really too minuscule to worry about - it is just like a seasoning.
