What are your kittens eating? Are they eating wet food, or mainly dry kibble (or are they real babies and are still nursing)? Canned wet food can cause more bad breath, because little bits can get stuck in the teeth and gums (just like people who don't brush!). Kibble is dryer and can actually help remove bits and tarter from teeth (and keep them cleaner that canned food alone). When I take my two cats into the vet for check-ups, she actually opens their mouths and sniffs for any foul odor. In this case, she is checking to see if there is any tooth decay (which can lead to foul breath). I doubt that your kittens have tooth decay at such a young age, but you can always ask your vet.
