|Hi Eddie and Chloe, welcome to Catster! In my opinion, you should stop feeding the kibble and transition completely over to canned food. It doesn't sound like they are enjoying the kibble very much anyway. Dry food isn't the best for animals that are obligate carnivores, like cats. It has too many carbohydrates, too many plnat based proteins, and too little moisture. If you are interested in these issues you can check out catinfo.org.
A really good list of grain free canned foods can be found on ibdkitties.net which is run by Catster kitties Alex, Finnegan, and Laceys' mom. She's very picky, so only good foods, without recent recalls are on her list.
I personally feed the boys raw, but they do get canned for breakfast on the weekdays. I buy Nature's Variety Instinct, EVO (they'll only eat the venison of this brand now for some reason), Merrick Surf & Turf, Weruva 9 Liver, Ziwipeak, and an occasional odd can on NB L.I.D. Duck & Green Pea.
Unfortunataly, the only way you can be sure that Eddie eats only what he is supposed to is to feed them seperately or to stand there and monitor what they eat. I think this would be a lot easier if you cut the kibble out too, since you say that they eat their canned food up right away.
