Hi,

Is "normal meal" a normal expression meaning "regular meal," as opposed to snacks (and midnight feasts)?

I'd appreciate your help.

Yes. Saying, "We had our normal meal at that time", would mean a regular meal, and not a snack.

_________________

In a general sense, both "regular meal" and "normal meal" convey a similar sense. "Regular" meals occur on a daily basis, typically several times a day. It provides the ingredients required for wholesome food. "Regular meal" is the commonly used expression. It includes a variety of healthy foods from all the food groups.

In my view, "normal food" would refer to the food items being usually/normally consumed by a person. We use "normal" in expressions like "normal amount of food", "normal food times". Interestingly, we usually say "irregular meal pattern" and "irregular meal frequency" etc.
