need kitten or cat training aids

I have a 1yr old cat and a 17 week old kitten. We feed the cat a indoor formula and the kitten a kitten formula. my problem is that the wiskers (cat) wants to eat the kittens (freckles) food and freckles wants to eat wiskers. wiskers isn't eating anything but the kitten formula but the kitten is eating both.
I have heard that if you put water and lemon juice together and spray it in the cats mouth when they are doing somthing bad that they will stop doing it. Is that true and does lemon juice hurt the cat.
i need some way of getting them both to eat thier own food because the kitten is to young to eat the cat formula food.
If you have any ideas please help.
I have tried to have them eat in different rooms and even at different levels but my cat wiskers still finding it and eating it no matter what.

Well, feed them in different rooms with the door shut. You shouldn't spray lemon juice and water in your cat's mouth for eating - thats confusing. Feed one, and play with the other. Feed the other, and play with the one that was eating last. Distract them from wanting to eat each other's food.
