I would say there is a limit, I'd worry about the cholesterol if adults need to worry about it why not children?

I've not heard of a limit

Hannah has an egg for breakfast probably 4-5 days out of the week (sometimes more sometimes less)

Years ago there used to be a limit (for adults and children) of three per week because of cholesterol risks. This guideline is no longer in place though as it was found there was no correlation and there is now no limit on egg consumption.

I think its fine for a toddler to have eggs frequently, but not runny if under one.
