I read somewhere that Senior and Lite formula's are not healhty as they are lacking necessary nutrients in order to say they are senior or lite. Has anyone have an opinion on this? Also, I notice that premium brands such as Innova don't even make a kitten formula. Why is that? Are kitten foods really necessary? What is the protein and fat requirement for a kitten?

The problem with Senior and Lite foods is that they increase the carbs. That results in less protein and fat in the product overall.

Innova's food is "made for all life stages" and so can be fed to kittens or adults.

Most high-quality foods are made for all life stages. Natural Balance Ultra Formula is made for all life stages, even though they do have a reduced-calorie formula. Felidae and Wellness are both made for all life stages as well.

Take Care,

With most of the premium foods that are labeled for all life stages it'll tell you on the bad how much to feed...and although cats of all ages are eating the same food, the kittens get the protein, etc. that they need because they are fed larger portions and more frequently throughout the day.
