The benefits of feeding kibble are many, and I totally understand wanting to find a solution that lets you do that.
I am too new at this to have any sure-fire advice...but I do believe it won't hurt the pup to go hungry (miss a meal) a time or two to help build an appreciation for his kibble. If I were in your shoes, (and I basically was when I brought my pup home...she was fed 100% raw at her breeder's home) I would find a good kibble I was confident in and wean him off the raw completely...at least for now. If he knows something better is coming later in the day, he may not care to eat the kibble. If all he gets is kibble...and he gets hungry enough...he'll learn to like it. Once you get him used to eating the hard, crunchy bits, then maybe you can dial in a flavor that he likes best.
