the phrase "a day" in English should also include the translation "κάθε μέρα" in this example, or no?

Given that there is better word-for-word matching I'd say no. In this context, I do this:

per day = ανά ημέρα

a day = τη μέρα / την ημέρα

every day = κάθε μέρα

I agree. In this context doesn't suit to use κάθε μέρα.

Ο εργαζόμενος τρώει δύο αυγά την ημέρα. it is correct

why is wrong "Ο εργάτης τρώει δύο αβγα τη μέρα
