Do Kittens really need Kitten food? or is Cat food OK?

Yes, kittens need kitten food, just as puppies need puppy food. Pet foods labeled “kitten food” are nutritionally and chemically different from pet foods labeled “cat food.” You want to feed a life-stage appropriate diet: kitten food for kittens; cat food for adult cats, therapeutic foods for older adult cats with special dietary needs.

Here are some tips on feeding kittens from the ASPCA:  http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/nutrition-tips-kitten/
