Taking food into Ushaia, Argentina and sending a package....

Taking food to ushuaia and sending a package to a hotel...

My son and i will be spending some time in Ushaia. As he has some severe food
allergies I wondered if anyone could advise me on taking food with us?

Before anyone says it, I do know that they will have food in Ushuaua. I would
just rather take things I know he can, and will eat.

I have heard that on arrival at ushaia airport they check for food? I presume
that this is only for fresh food, meat, or dairy?
We would be flying from America, and so would bring food on the plane to Beunos
Aires and onto Ushuaia. Would bringing packaged food into Argentina be a
problem?

We would also like to send some food items ahead of us to the hotel we are
staying at in Ushuaia. We were thinking of sending it by fed ex or DHL from
America. Does anyone have any experience with doing this sort of thing? Would
there be any problems with customs? If we sent it to the hotel could we just pay
any customs when we arrive? I have heard some people mention about having to
collect parcels from the customs office in person, which I'm guessing would not
be in Ushuaia.

Any help great fully received.
