A good topic sentence should relate the contents of your paragraph.  For example:  Eating healthy food has many positive benefits.  The most important thing to consider when writing topic sentences is to make sure that you convey the broad topic of the paragraph that you are writing.

A good topic sentence should specify exactly what you are trying to say about healthy food.  For example, if your paper is on healthy food leading to a longer life, your topic sentence would be:

Healthy food can lead to longer lifespans for humans.

It really depends on what you are writing about.

A topic sentence can be placed anywhere in a paragraph, but it is typically found at the beginning or end of the paragraph. An example of a topic sentence might be "Including healthy foods in our diets can contribute to us living healthier lives," or "We can live healthier lives by eating healthy foods from the six food groups."

A topic sentence contains the main idea of that particular paragraph in which it is included and states the purpose of the writer. Since the topic sentence states the main idea of the paragraph it is usually surrounded by supporting details which elaborate and add meat to the main idea. This is typically done by supporting sentences through the use of examples, illustrations, anecdotes, facts, quotes and figures or numbers.
