A light and healthy breakfast typically includes some fat and protein as well as calcium and 5 grams of fiber, notes WebMD. Some light breakfast ideas include oatmeal, parfaits and smoothies.

Oatmeal is a high-fiber breakfast option, notes Health magazine. Individuals should eat steel-cut oats instead of flavored oatmeal options and prepare it with berries, honey and milk.

Parfaits are another healthy and light breakfast option that are prepared with yogurt, granola and fruit.

Smoothies can be prepared the night before by simply combining fruit and yogurt together. Individuals can then quickly blend the ingredients and take to-go for a light breakfast full of calcium and healthy fruits.
