It depends on who you want to follow as far as authorities

According to the American Diabetes Assn the post prandial (2 hrs after a meal) reading should be below 180 for reference see this article here ~ http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/...

According to Medicine.net the level should be below 160 post prandial. ~ http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.as...

According to the American Assn of Clinical Endochrinologists the blood glucose (BG) level should be below 140 mg/dl post pradial ~ http://www.aace.com/files/PositionStatement.pdf

needless to say the lower the better.
