While writing an essay I'm searching for some reliable source for the following experiment:

A baby is placed in front of two identical fruits, one which is covered with a transparent box. I think I've read that babys statistically prefer the boxed fruit and tries to reach it first, after which they investigate the easily accessible one.

I'm looking for a reference to this experiment.
