The new category comes as part of the iOS 7 release. TechCrunch has more:

The company first revealed this “Kids” section at its Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this summer when the revamped iOS 7 mobile operating system was first revealed.  The updated mobile App Store app also saw a number of other changes, including the removal of “Genius” from the bottom menu in favor of apps “Near Me” for example, support for automatic app updates, and more.

Apple began allowing kids under 13 to have an iTunes account back in August. If you’d like to find cool apps for your child, check out our Recommend Children’s App of the Week column. (Via TechCrunch).
