EIGRP will load balance the traffic for you, by default. If you want to share the traffic equally, you can enable cef and under each interface enable per-packet load sharing.

Keep in mind, per-packet load sharing can introduce new problems since packets may arrive to the destination out-of-order. VoIP traffic is one kind of traffic that would be affected by this configuration.
