Things that I think that worked: Set twice or three times a day as a meal time. Outside of the meal time, remove the food bowl from the house. At first, you may give them the kibble for meal since that's the food your cat will eat.
Once she is used to the meal time, replace one of the meals to can food. In the can food, add your cat's favorite as a topping. In my case, fortiflora, pieces of kibble, tuna flake worked the best, warming it up with warm water is good too. If that did not work, I turned to not-very-reputable can food like Royal Canine Can, or something with tuna in it, just to get them used to can.

When my cat is getting "somewhat" used to the can food for all meals, I'd remove the dry kibble bag to outside of the house so that the cat cannot smell the food in the house.
