A Barnet schoolboy will be the face of breakfast in schools across the capital.

TJ Dobson, 12, has been chosen to promote breakfast clubs across London’s primary schools.

He is on the committee of London’s Biggest Breakfast, which helps make sure children from the capital’s most deprived areas start the day with a free, healthy breakfast and are ready to learn.

The scheme was created by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson and its launch event was held at the Hilton Hotel, in Tower Bridge, central London.

Organisations are now being urged to host breakfasts over the next few months to help raise money for the campaign.

Mr Johnson said: “Getting involved with London’s Biggest Breakfast is an easy way for companies and individuals to help London kids get a healthy breakfast and set them up for their school day.”
