    Malnourishment in babies can occur if the mother is malnourished during pregnancy. This is because the baby relies on the nutrients provided by the mother through the placenta for its development. If the mother does not consume enough nutritious food, the baby may not receive sufficient nutrients, leading to malnourishment.
