Reply to "did - had"

Hi, Ahmed,

Hello. Which one is correct?

- Now fewer children and mothers have health problems than they (had - did) 100 years ago.

Thank you

'Did' seems more natural and more emphatic, but both are correct.

- Now fewer children and mothers have health problems than they did have / used to have / had 100 years ago.
