I am going to Tenerife self catering with 2 young fussy eaters. Can anyone tell me what food I can take. I was looking to take vacuum packed cheese and ham. I was happy to learn… You can buy cheese and ham in Tenerife that tastes just like that you buy in Britain. I believe there are restrictions regards the importation of meat products for certain. I’m not 100% about cheese and dairy products but they may also be restricted too. Having said that there a absolutely minimal (no) visible checks made at Tenerife south airport. You pick your case up off the carosel and are straight out of the door with nothing more than an occaisionally present security guard to walk past.
