Would "Zij heeft altijd tijd 's middags" also work here?

So "in de middag" can ONLY refer to 'in the afternoon'? I wrote 'at noon' and it was marked as incorrect. Is it really wrong?

In the Netherlands, it would only refer to the afternoon. However, I think that in Belgium, "middag" is the period aroud noon. In the Netherlands a common phrase for that period would be "tussen de middag".
