Question Transitioning from Baby -> Kitten food

Nola is now a 4 month old Calico who has been transitioned to Kitten food from Babycat food. I had her on the Royal Canin BabyCat 34 dry formula and slowly transitioned her to the Royal Canin Kitten 34 dry formula. I am at the end of the transition process and she is solely on the kitten food.

She is a small cat, about 3.4 pounds now, and is very healthy as confirmed by the vet. I have noticed, however, that she is eating less kitten food than she did when she on the 'baby' counterpart. She doesn't seem to be entirely crazy about the food, eating only a few kibbles at a time.

In conjunction with this development is her growing preference for pork, ground beef and veal whenever it is found on the kitchen table.

Alas, I have a few questions:
  1. Do I create a dry/wet formula in her dish to stimulate eating?
  2. Or is it suitable to put small pieces of our 'people' meat into her dry food dish?
  3. Or, should I allow her more time to get used to the Kitten food?

Thank you very much for your co-operation. This board has been of great assistance.
