I follow what I learned many years ago. Meals should be 4 hours apart.
If a longer time period is involved add a 1 total carb snack, A bedtime
snack of 1-2 total carbs which include a protein to keep bg stable during
the night.

I am not sure there is any rule for that. What I do is spread out my meals and snacks thru the day to try to keep my levels from bouncing all over. The best thing is to try to eat at the same time every day. So if you eat breakfast at 6:00 then have a snack around 10:00, then Lunch around noon....and so on. Try to keep a regular schedule and that will help more than anything.
