It is always difficult to convince cats not to eat eachothers food...i have the same problem with my 6 month old kitten.
It is maybe an idea to seperate your kitties at feeding time , maybe supervise one of them untill they are finished, and to remove your elder cats food out of kittens reach if it is unfinished.
Eating adult food wont ''harm'' your kitten but nutritionaly it will not provide what your kitten needs so please continue offering a food that is designed for her age. Best of luck!

you know, animals know better what they really need. And if your kitten eats adult cat food, it needs it. Although, I wouldn't recommend you feeding your kitten with cat food often as according to many reviews ( this food is not healthy.
