|Read http://www.catinfo.org Nearly everything you need to know about proper nutrition, and other things about caring for a cat, is right there
Whatever diet you feed now is what your kitten will be accustomed to. If for some reason much later in your cat's life a diet change is needed, it may be very difficult to do a diet change. Dry foods are coated in some kind of very yummy tasting ingredient which many cats get addicted to. Many dry food addicts will flat out refuse to eat canned food if a health issue requires it, like diabetes.
So feed your new kitten canned food right from the start. If you are interested in raw food, you can feed that too or in addition to canned food. I would only feed dry food as an occasional treat, just so the kitten knows what dry food is if there ever is a need to temporarily feed dry food, like if you are evacuated in an emergency.
Brand of canned food doesn't matter. The cheap supermarket brands are good (Fancy Feast, Friskies, etc). Some people buy the higher end (and more expensive) brands because of the higher quality of the ingredients and limited or no "junk" ingredients like grains and fillers.
