My granddaughter has a milkweed plant that has yellow afids. The nursery said that the afids are part of the cycle of life for the milkweed plant and that the catapiller will lay its eggs among the afids for protection. My question is will the afids eat the eggs?

Aphids feed on plants, and will not harm the caterpillars. You have nothing to worry about here.
