Most teens may consume 1-3 eggs each day without harming their health

If you don't consume eggs on a regular basis, 3-4 eggs once or twice a week should enough. 

Eggs are a low-carbohydrate, low-calorie, low-cost lunch. One egg includes 7 grams of high-quality protein

as well as iron, riboflavin, selenium, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, zinc, copper, and other minerals and vitamins.

Eggs also contain saturated fat and cholesterol, which can be harmful to some people if consumed in large quantities.

The most critical aspect is to be aware of your risk factors.

As part of a balanced diet, most individuals can eat 1-3 eggs each day. 

Those who are at risk for heart disease, diabetes, or have had a heart attack should monitor their cholesterol and saturated fat levels more closely.

It's fine to consume more eggs than that as long as you don't do so on a regular basis.
